UManitoba introduces Qualico Bridge to Success transition program for Indigenous students

April 5, 2017

The University of Manitoba has introduced the new Qualico Bridge to Success program, which aims to improve the transition of Indigenous students into postsecondary education at UManitoba. UManitoba notes that highlights of the program include one-day summer camps prior to the summer term, the Neechiwaken Indigenous Peer Mentor Program, and student advising. “The University of Manitoba is committed to creating a strong foundation for Indigenous students,” says Christine Cyr, director of the Indigenous Student Centre. “This program will allow us to promote Indigenous student success in meaningful and intentional ways.” The program was developed through a $1M donation from real estate company Qualico to UManitoba’s Front and Centre campaign. There is no cost to the students to participate. UManitoba (Announcement) | UManitoba (Program description)
