Graduate Students

Laurier warmly welcomes and offers dedicated support to Indigenous students pursuing graduate studies. The Indigenous graduate student community can access all our Indigenous student services, and more.

 Indigenous Graduate Student Monthly Gathering 

These gatherings are hosted by the Graduate Peer Mentors and provide a peer-to-peer space for Indigenous graduate students to receive support during their academic journey, from transition to program completion. The gatherings serve as opportunities to share knowledge and offer mutual support. There are three cohorts of students that participate in these meetings:

  1. Kitchener and Waterloo Students
  2. Online Students
  3. Brantford Students
