Indigenous Transfer Students

How we can help!

The Indigenous Transition Coordinator, Céline Wick, is here to assist Indigenous students to transition as seamlessly as possible into the academic culture at Lakehead University. Transferring from one institution to another can be overwhelming and students may experience a “culture shock.’’ The Indigenous Transition Coordinator is here to assist Indigenous transfer students in navigating the services, supports and resources available at Lakehead University.
