Pjila’si or Welcome in the Mi’kmaw language. I am Stephen J. Augustine, Associate Vice-President, Indigenous Affairs and Unama’ki College at Cape Breton University. CBU’s Unama’ki College is considered a leader in developing programs that are well suited for Indigenous students and others who have an interest in learning from different perspectives. These learning opportunities allow students the freedom to explore from the Mi’kmaw and from the mainstream ways of understanding, learning, and knowledge. At Unama’ki College we provide specialized student services geared to help Mi’kmaw and Indigenous students through their years of study. These specialized services also help students achieve their goal in an atmosphere of comfort and safety.
