Memorial University’s GRENFELL CAMPUS is located in Corner Brook, NL, in traditional Mi’kmaw territory that also includes parts of Québec, Canada’s Atlantic provinces, and the U.S. state of Maine. The province is also home to three other Aboriginal groups: Innu, Inuit, and Southern Inuit, whose territories are located in Labrador. Of the 1,200 students who call Grenfell Campus home, more than 300 have self-identified as Aboriginal (by indicating this on the Memorial University application).
Memorial University understands 'Aboriginal' to include people of First Nations, Inuit, or Métis ancestry. Most Aboriginal students at Grenfell Campus come from Western Newfoundland and South, Central and Northern Labrador.
There are many programs and services dedicated to Aboriginal students at Grenfell Campus. The Student Affairs Officer-Aboriginal, under Student Services, coordinates programming and acts as a liaison on campus and within the broader community. As well, there is a student-run Indigenous Caucus which is part of the Grenfell Campus Student Union.
The Aboriginal Student Centre, located at AS2027, is a designated culturally safe space for smudging and Kullik lighting, and is a site for student gatherings, orientation programs, Aboriginal Awareness programs, talking circles, various craft workshops, or just enjoying down time between classes. Other services available to Aboriginal students at Grenfell Campus include designated seats programs, guaranteed housing agreements for Nunatsiavut beneficiaries, and the list goes on. The Student Affairs Officer-Aboriginal Affairs is available to offer more details and to answer any questions you may have.
