Durham College is situated on the traditional territories of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nations. We acknowledge the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nations community for allowing us to be guests on their territories.
The Durham College mission is: The Student Experience Comes First. Suswaaning Endaajig Aboriginal Student Centre (ASC) embraces teachings from all First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples. We strive to recognize and support students through various activities and teachings with the assistance of Elders from all backgrounds. Durham College’s ASC utilizes a holistic approach to education serving Aboriginal students focusing on their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
Durham College recognizes the importance of Aboriginal Self- Identification and urges students who are of Aboriginal ancestry to self-identify if you are First Nations (status or non-status), Métis or Inuk (Inuit). Self-identification directs the centre in providing culturally meaningful supports and programming throughout your academic journey.
