Students from Kenjgewin Teg Educational Institue (KTEI) visit the University of Sudbury

The University of Sudbury, in collaboration with Algoma University and Nipissing University, have proudly contributed to the establishment of a transition program that was initiated this past September. These three institutions are committed to offering community-based university courses on site at KTEI, in M’Chigeeng on Manitoulin Island. The goal is for students to complete their first year of university studies while receiving the intensive academic and personal support available within their community before transitioning to a main university campus.

On November 28th, some of the students enrolled in the transition program came to visit! During their stop in Sudbury, the group received information concerning the Indigenous Studies program, toured the campus, met with the staff at Laurentian University’s Aboriginal Student Affairs, observed a class at the University of Sudbury, met with President Zundel, and spent time in the Indigenous Student’s Lounge.

It was great from the University’s perspective to meet with them and hopefully, from the students’ perspective they felt that their visit was worthwhile.
