The Mawi’omi Centre also assists current and incoming Indigenous students with admission and course selection, provides tutoring and access to other student services, as well as offers support, cultural growth, and teachings from the Elder in Residence.

Aboriginal Student Association

The Aboriginal Student Association is a student advocacy and support system for Aboriginal students who attend UPEI: a voice for Aboriginal students. This year, the ASA has been formally grounded and plans to continue to thrive! By being a member of the Aboriginal Student Association, you have the opportunity to meet a lot of great Aboriginal students both on and off of campus. The ASA provides students with a culturally supportive environment. The Aboriginal Student Association’s goal is to provide cultural awareness to UPEI while building capacity within the Aboriginal community and academic community. The hope of the ASA is to provide cultural awareness surrounding Aboriginal issues as well as organize social activities for our students. By having more students involved and being each other’s shoulder to lean on, we hope that students will be successful in their academic studies.
