Negahneewin Definition GraphicWe are working with our colleagues across the College to share our Indigenous Knowledge through the development of "Aboriginal Learning Outcomes" which are being introduced across all curricula. Faculty teaching in Aboriginal programs collaborate through formal committees to represent Indigenous perspectives.

In regards to Student Success, Confederation College staff work through a case management process and a sound referral system to assist learners with their needs. Overall, our collaborative, student-centered approach to Aboriginal education is practiced by all of our staff in a consistent manner across the College.

There is an Aboriginal Student Drop-In Centre known as "APIWIN" located on the first floor of the Shuniah Building. This is a quiet and safe learning space where students gather to rest and study. Students can have a cup of coffee and access laptops. Often, snacks and an occasional lunch are offered in this space. Students can also access an Elder to talk with on academic and personal matters.
