The Indigenous Student Centre (ISC) is pleased to offer the Qualico Bridge to Success Program. The goal of this program is to facilitate the transition of new Indigenous (First Nation, Inuit, Métis) students into post-secondary education at the University of Manitoba by offering peer-orientation activities, academic learning support, advising, peer-mentoring and special events that will enhance the first year experience. There is no cost to participate in this program.
The Qualico Bridge to Success Program nurtures the spiritual, physical, mental and emotional strengths of Indigenous students so they can be as successful as possible in their first year of study.
Who is considered a Qualico Bridge to Success student?
Any student who completes three or more activities between August-April will be considered a Qualico Bridge to Success student. Being a QBTS student at the end of the academic year will qualify students for tuition prize draws, give-aways and more. There will also be incentives provided throughout the year to use QBTS resources.
ARTS 1110 (Introduction to University): Each fall term a section of ARTS 1110 is reserved for students in the QBTS program. Registering for this section (TBD) will require special permission. Please contact Carla at email@example.com or phone (204) 291-5257 to request permission. ARTS 1110 (Introduction to University) is designed to help students make the transition to university by imparting the knowledge, skills, and attitudes requisite for success in university study. The reserved student lab section must be taken with a corresponding lecture section, which is scheduled in each Fall term on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:30-3:45 p.m. Registration for September 2018 begins in mid-July.
