Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Founded in 2010, the Indigenous Education Council (IEC) was created to promote a positive educational experience and success of Indigenous students at Laurier. The IEC is comprised of university administrators, faculty, students and Indigenous community members. It is committed to developing and supporting Indigenous educational aspirations through curriculum, programs, services and research at Laurier that meet the needs of both the Indigenous and non-Indigenous students, faculty and staff at Laurier.

The IEC assists and advises Laurier in identifying and articulating priorities for programs and services intended to increase the successful recruitment, retention and graduation of Indigenous students. The IEC provides leading advice regarding priorities for allocation of government and institutional funding for Indigenous initiatives.

"The Office of Indigenous Initiatives is committed to having Laurier be an extraordinary and empowering experience for all Indigenous students. We believe that education, in a welcoming environment, that honours Indigenous people, is the path for our people to be all that we can be. We are here to assist you in all areas of life as students and to ensure you have the best student experience that university can offer."
