Humber’s Elders Program


 College/University StudentsStudent SupportTraditional Teachers and Elders

The addition of Elder Services to the Student Success and Engagement at Humber provides the Aboriginal students with access to various resources including: cultural, historical and community information and referrals.

As more and more Aboriginal people are seeking post-secondary education it is imperative to select an individual(s) who can be flexible to meeting the needs of the students to encourage success in whatever field of study they choose. At Humber, an Aboriginal Elder is available to meet with students in a private environment to discuss personal or education related issues. Through Student Services, the Elder is available to the students for educational and spiritual counselling, personal advice and reflection.
