Indigenous commitment

For over 30 years, the Division of Continuing Studies has been offering programming to support Indigenous learners and communities. This includes working in partnership with the En’owkin Centre, an Indigenous post-secondary institution in Penticton BC, to deliver culturally relevant educational opportunities on-site, in addition to numerous partnerships with Indigenous organizations and communities across Turtle Island for the delivery of adult learning opportunities in the area of Indigenous language revitalization and other community and professional programs.

UVic's 2023 Indigenous Plan represents an essential foundation for UVic’s future, alongside UVic’s new Strategic Plan and other institutional plans. This plan weaves together our shared responsibilities to the local Nations, Indigenous students, staff and faculty through local laws and philosophies.

Indigenous connections

At UVic we continue to build on our commitment to—and our greatly valued relationship with—Indigenous communities. The Office of Indigenous Academic and Community Engagement offers a range of programs and events designed to develop and nurture those relationships.
