Memorial University is home to almost 2,000 Indigenous students, with over 800 students enrolled at the St. John's campus, and over 300 enrolled at the Grenfell campus in Corner Brook.
Indigenous students often travel great distances to attend Memorial. Whether they come from the big city or an isolated town, we are committed to the success of all status and non-status First Nation, Inuit, and Métis students. The transition to university can be drastic and challenging, and as Indigenous Peoples we often do not see ourselves represented or welcomed in all aspects of university life. Indigenous Affairs at Memorial strives to ensure that all Indigenous students experience a welcoming and supportive community that fosters a sense of belonging and connection.
Indigenous Affairs is made up of the Office of Indigenous Affairs, which operates institution-wide across all campuses, and oversees the Indigenous Student Resource Centre at the St. John's Campus. Whether students are studying online or on campus at one of our many learning facilities, Indigenous Affairs is here to assist students on their education journey.
As Memorial University undertakes the journey of indigenization and collaborative relationship building in order to walk a good path with Indigenous students, researchers, organizations and communities we hope to see an expansion of the resources and services that we can provide Indigenous students across all campuses.
