Concordia supports Indigenous self-identification through new online feature

October 17, 2019

Concordia University has added a new feature to its MyConcordia student portal that will allow students to self-identify as First Nations, Métis, Inuit, or international Indigenous at any point throughout their academic journey. The self-identification feature is intended to address government policies like the Indian Act that removed Indigenous peoples’ capacities to self-identify, and to enable the university to share information about relevant cultural activities at the Aboriginal Student Resource Centre (ASRC), as well as funding opportunities. Concordia is also encouraging alumni to self-identify to help create future networking opportunities amongst Indigenous graduates. Concordia (QC)
