Each U of T campus offers several supports for Indigenous students. The services strive to be a home away from home for Indigenous students. You can talk with counsellors, meet other students and join in activities and cultural events.
Culturally supportive academic advising is available for undergraduate and graduate students on all 3 campuses. You can access academic advising services that include assistance with academic planning, advocacy with other U of T departments, assistance with registration and scheduling, and personalized one-on-one appointments.
Elders are vital to the Indigenous community. The Elder and Traditional Teacher program at First Nations House and at the Indigenous Outreach Centres at University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) and University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) give you the chance to meet with Elders and Traditional Teachers for support, guidance and teachings.
The Indigenous Learning Strategist can help you with writing and research strategies, exam preparation or time management. Face-to-face meetings and workshops are offered throughout the year.
The Resource Centre, part of the First Nations House, maintains a growing collection of printed materials and audiovisual resources that represent a wide range of Indigenous-related content. The Resource Centre Coordinator is available to help students with research. The centre carries many texts and other course materials required in the Indigenous Studies program and a range of books that support students taking courses in other faculties and departments.
