Undergraduate Recruitment & Outreach

"Lakehead is where I found my voice."

The Indigenous Outreach and Recruitment mandate is to engage Indigenous learners and service the community locally and throughout the Province. Through outreach and recruitment services such as presentations, one on one visits and participation in the Aboriginal Post-Secondary Information Program (APSIP) we strive to reach and connect with Indigenous learners from senior elementary, high school and mature students. Our goal is to support our learners in the transition to Post secondary and beyond. Our office supports and partners with community to connect and support our students not only in their educational goals but we strive to support their career aspirations, employment potential, as well as their personal and professional development.

"Majoring in Women's Studies provided me with a space to explore the world of social justice from my own experience as an Anishinaabe, while gaining confidence to become an educator myself."
