Indigenous Education at NC provides a variety of academic and cultural supports for students, in a culturally sensitive manner, and encourages Indigenous student success. Services and supports include guidance on how to access College services, referrals and access to Indigenous counselling; advice and one-on-one support; opportunities for student leadership development; assistance with connecting to community organizations; support with applying for funding or working with bands; support for 2SLGBTQQIA+, and more.
They host initiatives such as Soup luncheons for students; provide community-building opportunities with peers, staff and faculty; offer cultural programming and workshops, and encourage participation in Indigenous events and celebrations where students have an opportunity to take on leadership roles.

Indigenous students are asked to self-identify. There are a number of services available to students who self-identify as Indigenous (First Nations Status or Non-Status, Métis and Inuit).
Self-identification is voluntary and confidential and does not require the student to produce any documentation.
This Resource Guide contains links to several resources related to Indigenous topics, including history, language, culture, and current issues. However, it is best practice to consult with the Indigenous community members and representatives that you are referring to and/or working with.
