Carleton University acknowledges the location of its campus on the traditional, unceded territories of the Algonquin nation.
The Centre for Indigenous Initiatives welcomes and supports First Nation, Métis and Inuit peoples who work and study at Carleton University. The Centre has a web of interconnected and culturally relevant programs and services that support students attending Carleton, to enhance the overall student experience and empower students during various stages of change for healthy living, well-being and academic success. The Centre also works with faculty, administration and professional services staff to foster understanding about Indigenous histories, cultures, traditions and worldviews. This is done by providing training sessions, workshops, guest lectures, and experiential learning opportunities.
The Centre for Indigenous Initiatives team has three Indigenous Liaison Officers who work collaboratively in creating a web of interconnected programs and services that support the Carleton community to ensure Indigenous cultures, traditions, histories and worldviews are respected and represented on campus.
