Aboriginal Student Association

The Aboriginal Student Association is a student advocacy and support system for Aboriginal students who attend UPEI: a voice for Aboriginal students. For a long time now, the ASA has been trying hard to establish itself at UPEI. This year, the ASA has been formally grounded and plans to continue to thrive! By being a member of the Aboriginal Student Association, you have the opportunity to meet a lot of great Aboriginal students both on and off of campus. The ASA provides students with a culturally supportive environment. The Aboriginal Student Association’s goal is to provide cultural awareness to UPEI while building capacity within the Aboriginal community and academic community. The hope of the ASA is to provide cultural awareness surrounding Aboriginal issues as well as organize social activities for our students. By having more students involved and being eachother’s shoulder to lean on, we hope that students will be successful in their academic studies.
