Lalita Kines
Associate Director
Office: FPH 150

My name is Lalita Kines. I am from the K'ómoks Nation on my father's side and French, English, Irish, Scottish and Swedish on my mother's side. I have an undergraduate degree in Adult Education from the University of the Fraser Valley, and an MEd from Simon Fraser University, with a focus on curriculum design and anti-racism. 

I am passionate about Indigenous student support and improving educational experiences for Indigenous students and communities. Our office strives to create an extraordinary and culturally-responsive environment, where students, faculty and community members experience the university as a welcoming, supportive and safe environment in which Indigenous values, language and culture are evident.
