Get involved

We provide students, researchers, and community members interested in pursuing a career in Indigenous well-being and research with opportunities to gain valuable experience in Indigenous research. At the centre, we support the engagement of students, community members and researchers in all aspects of the research process, including publication authorship and conference presentations. There are a growing number of Indigenous researchers working at UVic across faculties and departments that are actively involved in creating programs to nurture and mentor the next generation of Indigenous researchers, especially the Indigenous faculty who are members of the centre. 

We strive to respectfully engage with Indigenous communities, researchers, health practitioners and policy-makers, while working to contribute to ongoing research and collaborative projects and event planning.

If you are interested in more information, please contact us. Drop-in visitors are always welcome!
