Indigenous Centre

Situated in a Canadian prairie province on Treaty 4 land where Indigenous issues are exceedingly relevant, Briercrest welcomes full- and part-time learners from across the globe. Our unique, safe, and caring community campus provides a complete educational journey.

The Indigenous Centre provides a space where students can find academic support, stay connected to their Indigenous culture, and connect with other Briercrest students. We are committed to increasing the admission and retention rates of Indigenous students and encourage their pursuit of higher education. We encourage First Nations, Inuit, or Métis students to identify themselves when filling out their applications allowing a more seamless transition to the Briercrest community.

Location
The Indigenous Centre is located in the main Administration building, across the hall from Academic Services
