Centre for Indigenous Initiatives

Mandate

At the Centre for Indigenous Initiatives (CII), we support students, staff and faculty at Carleton by providing culturally safe spaces for dialogue and learning. We do this by nurturing a sense of belonging for Indigenous students, and by developing and delivering resources and training to educate the Carleton community about the experiences, histories and worldviews of Indigenous peoples.

All of this work is guided by our deep connection to ancestral teachings and our recognition of the Algonquin people within whose territory our office is located.

Join us on Minwàdjimowin (weekly e-newsletter), Facebook, Twitter and Instagram! You can also email us at indigenous@carleton.ca.
