Boozhoo!

We are honoured to be part of your university experience, and we want to welcome you to Nipissing University. In Nipissing dialect, Enji giigdoyang translates roughly to mean 'where we come to meet, discuss and talk about things', which is the culture the office hopes to foster.

The goal of Aboriginal Initiatives Office is to assist you in successfully completing your degree or diploma program at Nipissing University and to have an enriching experience while you are a student here. The Nipissing University Aboriginal student community is a warm and friendly group. We enjoy laughter and warm bannock. We honour each other's life experiences and welcome you to join in our family.
 
We are dedicated to helping you achieve success in your studies by providing personal, academic and financial support for First Nation, Métis and Inuit students. We can also show you around the university, help you find resources, answer any questions or help with any requests you may have. In addition, we are responsible for organizing many social and educational activities and workshops throughout the year, so keep your eyes out for our newsletter and check the events listing on the website.
 
Know that our doors are always open in room F215. We look forward to seeing you.
