Elders on Campus
Elders and Knowledge Keepers carry their stories, teachings, laws and songs within them to pass on to the next generations. Elders on Campus offers the opportunity to meet and make connections with Elders in our community.
We are honoured to have them join us on campus to give us a wider sense of community and provide learning opportunities through intergenerational connections.
Join Elders on campus on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays!
