Indigenous Student Success Certificate

You can get into university. You can start university after working, raising children, caring for family or another absence. The Indigenous Student Success Certificate (ISSC) is a way for Indigenous students who are not fully admissible to ULethbridge to enter (and succeed at) university.

Meet the Elders in Residence

With traditional teachings and storytelling, our Elders offer guidance, cultural support and encouragement to the campus community. All students are welcome and invited to meet with them on campus throughout the academic year in the Carolla (Napiakii) Calf Robe Elders and Ceremony Room (A430) or the Iikaisskini (Low Horn) Gathering Centre (W650).​

Events are sponsored by the Indigenous Governance and Business Management program. Read more about the Elders in Residence.
