Indigenous Student Services- Office of International Affairs
The Office of Indigenous Affairs (INAF) promotes, supports and facilitates UVic's comprehensive Indigenous initiatives including: academic programs, student support services and protocol activities.
The office also provides advice to university departments, faculty members, staff and administrators to expand UVic partnerships with First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities and organizations.
The Director works closely with the President, Vice-Presidents, Deans, Chairs, Academic and Research Units and Student Affairs and ensures a coordinated and proactive approach to Indigenous initiatives, both on and off campus. The Director has an influential role in developing policy related to Indigenous Education. (email@example.com and 250-721-6326).
The Office of Indigenous Affairs has an expanded role and mandate in keeping with the University's goal to be the University of choice for Indigenous Students. The office is located in the First Peoples House, General Office (email: firstname.lastname@example.org and phone: 250-472-4913).
The First Peoples House was built (2009) intentionally to support Indigenous students. We welcome and encourage others to come in and be a part of creating a welcoming and supportive environment for Indigenous students at the University of Victoria. It is asked that all those who enter this place do so with respect for the ancestors, the original care-takers of this land, and for each other.
The First Peoples House does have spaces available for booking. All room usage in the First Peoples House must meet the objectives of Indigenous Education and/or Indigenous Cultural Resurgence. For more information about the First Peoples House and booking inquiries please contact the First Peoples House Receptionist (email@example.com and 250-853-3601).
