In the 2012/2013 academic year, over 200 Grenfell students identified themselves as Aboriginal. Students declare their Aboriginal identity in the University Application. It is important to note that this is the only method by which Grenfell is aware of Aboriginal students on campus. Aboriginal students at Grenfell come from an array of different cultural backgrounds such as the Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Nation (western Newfoundland), NunatuKavut (southern Labrador), Nunatsiavut Government (northern Labrador), Nunavut (Canadian Arctic), other Mi’kmaq bands from across the Atlantic region and the list goes on.
Aboriginal students also have a space on campus to meet, study, relax, and retrieve Aboriginal specific information. This room is the Aboriginal Resource Room in the new Arts & Science (AS) extension in room AS2027.
