First Peoples’ House Student Supports
First Peoples’ House is a student service centre for First Nations, Métis and Inuit students at the University of Alberta. The centre is the heart of the Indigenous student community on campus. First Peoples’ House offers programs and services to help students achieve academic success and personal growth. New language resources and tutoring is now available.
First Peoples’ House is considered “a home away from home” by the community of 1,400+ Indigenous students at the University of Alberta.
Developing first points of engagement with language and culture for these students will help to create a stronger Indigenous community on campus. First Peoples’ House currently offers cultural programming to connect students with their language in an organic way, as well as Cree tutors for further academic support. The enrichment of this language and cultural pathway can create a ripple effect that extends beyond the university community — as students achieve their personal and academic growth, they become productive and healthy role models, enriching and uplifting their communities and their workplace.
