Students are at the heart of our work here at the Indigenous Sharing and Learning Centre!

“Being a student at Laurentian has been amazing! I could not have been successful without the support from everyone at the Indigenous Student Affairs office. They helped me learn what it means to be a strong Anishinaabe-kwe in my community and in academia.”
