Elders in Residence
Dalhousie University has been developing programs and services to support its Indigenous students. One of the programs that it has already released with fantastic review from students, faculty, and staff is the Elders in Residence Program. The Elders in Residence program is available to students across campus, including the Agricultural Campus in Truro.
Based within the Indigenous Minor program, the Elders are committed to being available to students for guidance, counsel and support, as well as provide smudging ceremonies at the Multi-Faith Centre on campus and conducting talking circles for students on request. The Elders are an excellent cultural resource on campus and just one of the initiatives that Dalhousie has implemented to support Indigenous students success.
