Indigenous students

The University of Manitoba campuses are located on original lands of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation. We respect the Treaties that were made on these territories, we acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past, and we dedicate ourselves to move forward in partnership with Indigenous communities in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.

The Faculty of Science is an active participant in the University-community wide effort to realize the goals and priorities associated with the University’s strategic commitment to Indigenous achievement, built around two key foundation areas: Community Building and Resource Building.

The Faculty of Science has many successful Indigenous students and alumni, and many accomplishments on which to build. We are committed to supporting even greater levels of achievement and we are exploring ways in which to expand our supports to create educational and financial pathways for Indigenous students, exploring ways to reduce and remove barriers to success, and developing Indigenous Science advising, peer and mentor support.


The U of M offers opportunities for Indigenous students to connect, participate and share their voice and vision in the classroom and beyond. Check out Indigenous Connect. To learn more about programs such as the leadership group ‘Indigenous Circle of Empowerment,’ visit:
