The Indigenous Academic Success Cohort (IASC) is an opportunity for Indigenous students to take their first year of university classes in a supportive Indigenized environment. Students from other programs may also apply and register for the program.
Courses in the program will weave together strategies for achieving academic success with Indigenous history, culture, and knowledge. Elders will be invited into the classrooms, and students will go on field trips to learn more about Indigenous worldviews, the importance of place, and a sense of self.
In addition to the support of the IASC program and Elders, the Indigenous Student Centre is available as a friendly mentoring environment where students can get assistance, advice and resources.
This cohort initiative allows groups of students to work as a community at the same time on similar courses. In semester one (September), students will take three core courses together and in the second semester (January), two core courses together and one course of each student’s choice (i.e., an elective course). Students will receive academic advising support to select their elective courses.
