Indigenous Liaison Coordinator
The Indigenous Liaison Coordinator offers students support on their journey of furthering their
education, recognizing and promoting the need to weave together the world of an indigenous person with
the life of a college student. Students can expect that the Coordinator will champion Indigenous Culture and
ensure that it is celebrated and honoured within GPRC.
The coordinator works with Bands, Councils and Elders to create educational opportunities for students, and
will support students in finding and utilizing community resources to meet their needs.
Elder In Residence
The Elder in Residence program provides students with a consistent and approachable Elder who can help
address the struggles of being a student and give guidance on how to incorporate the traditional life with
the life of being a student. Additionally, the Elder in Residence provides teachings about
indigenous culture and spirituality, advising faculty and administration, and giving class
presentations when invited to do so.
Students at GPRC benefit from the support and guidance of the Elder in Residence, who has the unique ability
to holistically meet the needs of the student, offering support and guidance to the student and his/her
family, as well as address spiritual needs through song and ceremony. These are key elements of
success for students.
