Special services and programs for Indigenous students are provided on the Fredericton campus through the Mi’kmaq-Wolastoqey Centre (firstname.lastname@example.org) (Marshall d'Avray Hall, Rooms 343-344). The Centre is an academic unit of the University which administers UNB Academic programs for Indigenous students and engages in research and publication in Indigenous Studies and Indigenous Education. The Centre's goal is to maintain the high quality of UNB programs for Indigenous students and to broaden the Aborginal content and perspectives in these programs. In addition, MWC develops new programs which meet the stated needs of the Indigenouscommunities of the region and contribute to their educational and professional growth.
MWC services, which are intended for the use of Indigenousstudents in all Faculties, include academic counseling and tutoring, access to the Mi’kmaq-Wolastoqey Resource Collection in the Harriet Irving Library, a Wabanaki student lounge, and opportunities to participate in social and other group events.
Degree credit courses are available in the Mi'kmaq and Wolastoqey languages and cultures, and in First Nations Education.
For information on the special BEd Program for First Nations students, see the Fredericton Programs Section of this Calendar.
