Indigenous Education & Community Connections

Aboriginal Services Plan

Surrounding students with rich culture

Indigenous Education & Community Connections (IECC) is involved in a number of projects and events intended to enhance Indigenous student success and support community engagement in education.

Enhancing Indigenous student success

In addition to the supports provided by the College, Indigenous students have access to services made possible by the Aboriginal Service Plan (ASP), which is annually funded by the Ministry of Advanced Education.

The ASP is intended to:

  • increase Indigenous student access, retention and completion
  • strengthen community partnerships and collaboration in Indigenous post-secondary education, and
  • encourage post-secondary institutions to make their programs more receptive and relevant to Indigenous students.

ASP funding has enabled Camosun to hire a Community Liaison, launch the Elders' Voices project, and offer a range of projects to deepen relationships with local communities. For example, through the Elders-in-Residence program students have access to the cultural, emotional and spiritual support of Elders.

Learn more about the projects started with ASP funding.
