Hay ch qa’ sii’em siye’yu mukw mustimuxw. Welcome!

In keeping with regional protocol, we acknowledge and thank the Coast Salish people whose traditional territory Vancouver Island University resides on. We value the opportunity to learn, live and share educational experiences here. We are Vancouver Island University’s 'su'luqw'a' Community Cousins, an Aboriginal student mentorship program. We represent many different Nations and cultures from across Canada. Our goal is to lift each other up, recognize and celebrate culture, strengthen community on campus, provide support and have fun!

Meet some of the Mentors and read about their stories and experiences.
