“First Nations University of Canada has provided me the tools and confidence to help the healing journey of many of Cowessess First Nation citizens as well maneuver a governance structure based on Nation Building governance. When at First Nations University of Canada, you become apart of a family that believes in Indigenous world ideology and this foundation is in high demand in Canada and beyond.”

Bachelor of Arts in Journalism
Class of 2017
“Even though I graduated in 2017, when I walk through those doors it feels like I never left. It truly is a second home to me. My classmates became my friends and I have witnessed many of them become leaders in politics, economic development and education as well as successful entrepreneurs. I can say with confidence that FNUniv is the only Institution I know in Canada that understands the complex familial structures Indigenous people have experienced because the leaders of the University are Indigenous. ”

“FNUniv gave me more than an education, they gave me my identity by teaching me my Indigenous culture. I owe a great deal of my success to the staff and elders at FNUniv that embedded our Indigenous teachings in me. At FNUniv you are more than a student, you are seen as family to the staff.”

“The First Nations University became my second home during my time there. The profs, staff, and the students became my extended family that, to this day, I still rely on for support and strength.
