The University of Manitoba is recognized as a sacred space where every Indigenous student is empowered with the resources needed to achieve academic success and cultural and spiritual wellbeing so that they can grow as leaders in their communities and fields of study.
The Indigenous Student Centre (ISC) provides holistic supports, services and opportunities so that students will feel a sense of belonging, be affirmed in their identities, have meaningful experiences and achieve authenic success. The ISC creates opportunities for students, staff, faculty and the wider community to learn about, celebrate and honour Indigenous cultures, knowledge, languages and ways of being.
The ISC has adopted Guiding Principles based on the Seven Sacred Teachings as our core values. They guide the process of engagement for all members of the ISC as we work to serve the students and the community of the University of Manitoba as well as the larger community.
