Aboriginal Students


Champlain Lennoxville’s Aboriginal Student Services’ approach is holistic, relationship-oriented, and is designed to connect indigenous students with their peers and the larger College community.


Students receive personal and individualized support that fosters a sense of belonging and motivation to persist in their chosen field of study.


Support services and activities seek to ensure that indigenous students experience a welcoming and inclusive community that champions academic success for all students.

Services include:

  • A dedicated office space where indigenous students can gather, study, and spend time together
  • The Advantage Pathway in the Springboard to DCS Program that facilitates making the transition to college life through a program that offers smaller class sizes and collaborative instruction and learning opportunities
  • Aboriginal ‘Cougar Buddy’ Program that pairs Aboriginal students currently studying at the College with incoming students
  • Individualized academic mentoring and support from the Aboriginal Services Advisor
  • Aboriginal student get-togethers and cultural/social activities that foster a sense of community within the larger student body
  • Assistance in applying for scholarships and post-collegiate and university studies
