Community Learning - Programs and Services

Indigenous UWinnipeg

We believe it is critically important to reach out and partner with our inner-city neighbors and Indigenous communities so that together, we can create a vibrant, reflective, and relevant learning environment. Our Community Learning initiative is focused primarily on supporting those who are underrepresented on Canadian campuses including Indigenous students, young people from war-affected areas and refugee populations, and youth from inner-city neighbourhoods. We fundraise for all Community Learning activities, and we thank our generous donors.

2011 Community Coalition to Support Flood Evacuated Children

Hundreds of children and youth from several Manitoba First Nations have been living in Winnipeg hotels, displaced from their homes by severe spring flooding in 2011. It adds another layer of stress on families already coping with the loss of everything familiar. In July 2011, The University of Winnipeg brought together a unique coalition including representatives from First Nations, government, health, social agencies, community organizations, police, the Winnipeg School Division, and two of Winnipeg's universities, to arrange for high quality summer camps for the children and youth. These are just a few of the pictures.
