Aboriginal Education Newsletter Fall 2019


Welcome to the fall edition of our Aboriginal Education Newsletter.

As September arrives we welcome new and returning students to our campuses and learning centre – you can feel the energy and excitement in the air as the new academic year gets underway.

Numerous services and supports are available to students here at NIC, including special events, workshops and connection opportunities to provide help, assistance and support.

I encourage all students to take advantage of these opportunities. We are here to support you in your success.

One program we are excited about this fall is Aboriginal Scholars. This program was piloted in the Comox

Valley and is now being rolled out across all NIC campuses.

As we plan out the coming academic year, please share with us events, initiatives and stories of work being done in departments and classrooms throughout NIC.

Indigenization and reconciliation is something we all take part in, through both big and small steps. It is something we live at NIC and we encourage you to share the hard work being done by our students, faculty and staff throughout the year.

Please send information on stories and events to: ab.ed@nic.bc.ca
