Mi’Kmaq-Wolastoqey Centre (formerly Mi'Kmaq-Maliseet Institute)

The Mi’kmaq-Wolastoqey Centre (MWC) embraces the principles of respect, sharing, harmony, acceptance and unity in diversity. As part of the Centre’s vision, all UNB students, faculty and administrators will be familiar with Wolastoqey and Mi’kmaq histories, languages, worldviews, contributions, treaty rights and cultural, social, economic and political conditions.

In supporting students’ academic success, Wolastoqey and Mi’kmaq identities, languages, values, beliefs, worldviews, ancestral teachings, ways of knowing, knowledge systems and philosophies will flourish within the University of New Brunswick.

Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqey students attending UNB are supported by Centre staff while given opportunities to develop a strong cultural foundation as well as academic and professional skills.
