The University of Lethbridge provides academic, cultural, and personal support services for self-declared First Nations, Métis, and Inuit students who are interested in careers in the health sciences. An integrated approach is utilized involving Elders, mentors, and advisors as well as assistance in locating resources such as accessibility services, accommodated learning, tutors, and scholarship applications. Students are encouraged to meet with Elders for guidance, cultural support, and spiritual mentoring. Dedicated homework space is provided, and social networking opportunities help students adjust to student life and create peer support systems.
Within our faculty if you would like to access our services or have any questions, you are encouraged to call the Faculty of Health Sciences Learning Facilitator at 403-332-4579 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
