First Nations Centre
Due to COVID-19, some spaces, activities, or programs may be more limited than usual; however, the First Nations Centre remains open and we are committed to continuing to provide supports and services whether in-person or online.
The First Nations Centre is honoured to provide holistic support services to students, staff and faculty at UNBC. The First Nations Centre is a culturally safe and accessible space where leadership, academic growth, relationships, and personal supports are fostered.
We offer a wide variety of programs, services, and activities that help to improve educational outcomes for Aboriginal students, create awareness and understanding of Indigenous perspectives and worldviews, and celebrate Aboriginal culture. Our team is here to welcome everyone who visits or accesses the First Nations Centre.
Beyond supporting Aboriginal students, one of the goals of the FNC is to help create dialogue and an understanding of Aboriginal peoples and cultures to the wider UNBC community.
To stay up to date on all First Nations Centre programming, events, and supports, sign-up for our Listserv by contacting our Aboriginal Connections Coordinator, and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Hours and student access
The FNC is staffed and open to all during regular operating hours, Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.. Students can request extended access and have their student cards coded for 24/7 access.
To request extended access, speak with an FNC staff member.
The FNC is accessible to all students not just Indigenous students - it is truly an inclusive environment.
