Support Indigenous Students

Sheridan supports its Indigenous Learners through the Centre for Indigenous Learning and Support. The Centre offers a culturally safe environment for students who are First Nations, Metis, and Inuit learners. The Indigenous office supports the academic and personal success of all Indigenous students regardless of status. The goal of the office is to see that all personal identities of our Indigenous learners are maintained within the institution by providing appropriate cultural activities in partnership with our elder.

The Indigenous office is committed to ensuring Sheridan is on the pathway to reconciliation; education will be the key to ensuring that Indigenous learners will achieve their highest potential. The Indigenous office will engage and consult the community to develop appropriate curriculum that will bring better awareness to the broader Sheridan community. The Indigenous office also initiated a self-identification campaign to find our Indigenous students and to connect them with the appropriate services.
