Learn about opportunities for Indigenous U of M students

January 18, 2017 — 

A message to the University of Manitoba community from Christine Cyr, Director, Indigenous Student Centre:

As members of our dynamic Indigenous community at the U of M, Indigenous students have a NEW opportunity to get the most from their university experience.

Director of the Indigenous Student Centre Christine Cyr.

Beginning Monday, January 23rd, the Indigenous Student Centre will be offering a bi-weekly e-newsletter to let Indigenous students know about:

  • Upcoming social and cultural events
  • Scholarships, bursaries and awards
  • Resources for Indigenous students
  • Job opportunities
  • Leadership development programs
  • Chances to volunteer and connect with others

This new e-newsletter will be similar in format to U of M’s Student Weekly, but is specific to Métis, First Nation and Inuit students – 2,400+ strong!

Indigenous students can click here to receive the Indigenous Student Newsletter, by signing up in their Aurora account:

  • Please go to your student profile in Aurora
  • Go to either the “Personal Information” tab or the “Declarations” tab and then click on “Canadian Indigenous Self-Declaration”
  • Select that you would like to update your profile
  • Where you are given the option to receive communication about U of M’s Indigenous Community select “Yes”

Students that have already signed up to receive the newsletter when they self-declared as an Indigenous student, do not have to do so again.

If you have any questions about the Indigenous Student Newsletter, please email: indigenous [dot] newsletter [at] umanitoba [dot] ca

Kinanaskomitin! Miigwech! Marsi! Thank you!
