Pjila’si, Atelihai, Tunngasugit,
Welcome to Indigenous Affairs at Memorial University. Indigenous Affairs is made up of two distinct branches: the Office of Indigenous Affairs, which operates institution-wide across all campuses and oversees the operations of the second branch, the Indigenous Student Resource Centre (ISRC) at the St. John's Campus. The ISRC exists to provide academic, cultural, and personal programming and services to all self-identified Indigenous students (status and non-status First Nations, Inuit, and Métis). The ISRC also provides educational services to the non-Indigenous Memorial University community, and works collaboratively to build relationships between the university and Indigenous organizations and communities. The Office of Indigenous Affairs exists to guide and support the university in Indigenizing the academy and in building and maintaining positive relationships with Indigenous students, faculty, staff, organizations and communities.
We are currently in the process of creating our new home on the web. This is an exciting time for us as this is our chance to build a virtual space that is for, by, and about the Indigenous Peoples whose land this province and university were built on. It is time for us to tell our story - please check back soon as we will be adding new content to the Indigenous Affairs website each week.
If you have any questions or inquiries our staff would be more than happy to assist you.
