We welcome Indigenous students, their families, Elders, youth and children within inclusive programs in Enji giigdoyang, the Office of Indigenous Initiatives.

In the Nbisiing dialect of Anishnaabemwin, Enji giigdoyang means “where we come to meet, discuss and talk about things,” which is the culture we hope to foster. We enhance the educational experience through a holistic approach to academic, personal, and cultural support.​ We honour one another's life experiences and invite you to connect with our campus community and guests of the university in workshops and events on campus.
