The Indigenous Council of Queen’s University
The Indigenous Council of Queen's University was established in 1992 in order to “ensure that for generations hereafter Indigenous peoples will have access to higher education at Queen's University, and that the institution will be responsive to the broader needs of Indigenous peoples." The council supports and provides advice relating to numerous programs and services at Queen’s. Some of their working groups include the Indigenous Student Access and Support working work, the Indigenous cultural Awareness and Programming working group and the Indigenous knowledge, curriculum and Research working group.
