Aboriginal Students’ Centre provides programs and services designed to increase the retention and success rates of Aboriginal students at the U of S.  Through a holistic approach, the Aboriginal Students’ Centre (ASC) promotes spiritual, physical, emotional and mental well-being.

The ASC recognizes that students may be overwhelmed within the university setting and prides itself on creating an inclusive community and supporting students by providing a variety of programs and services centered around developing healthy lifestyles, coping with loneliness and relationships, and recognizing  their successes. 

This includes:

  • Transition Support – academic skills workshops etc.
  • Advising – informing about various support services, funding, employment opportunities etc.
  • Cultural Programming – Elders Service, cultural ceremonies (pipe ceremonies, sweat lodges) etc.
  • Celebrating Achievement - Aboriginal Achievement Week , Graduation Powwow, etc.
