The staff of the Indigenous Student Centre want to remind you that we are here to support you in every way, and we are always open to new ideas so that we can support you better.

In taking every precaution and following Western’s Covid-19 safety guidelines, our capacity is limited and students must complete the return to campus questionnaire.

Staff are available virtually to support your academic and personal needs, please reach out by emailing is.staff@uwo.ca or calling our individual extensions listed here on our staff page.

We know that this time of the year is particularly difficult please remember that we have Tisha Summers, Art Therapist and Elder Myrna Kicknosway to virtually support you, email is.staff@uwo.ca to make an appointment.

If you are in immediate need of help, you can find resources through Western’s Student Crisis Contact Information.
