Indigenous Peoples’ Centre
We are located in the heart of the university, nested right between the library and student services area. Services include holistic and developmental advising, orientation, academic support and Elders in residence. We provide computers, a telephone to call home, a boardroom, meeting areas for off campus education counselors, employment information and information about financial awards like scholarships and bursaries. IPC is a resource area on campus and in the community that makes referrals and provides information on resources, student leadership, and peer support.
Brandon University has campuses on both Treaty 1 and Treaty 2 territories. Our main campus is located in Brandon, Manitoba, on Treaty 2 territory. This is traditional shared land between the Dakota and Ojibway. The Turtle Mountains and Brandon Area was also home to the Métis peoples. Settlements along the Assiniboine River and into northeastern areas of Saskatchewan created a chain of Métis Communities. We at Brandon University acknowledge and respect the history, land and the people of this area.
On behalf of Brandon University, I welcome you to the traditional homelands of the Dakota, Anishanabek, Oji-Cree, Cree, Dene, and Metis peoples.
