Role, Impacts and Implications of Dedicated Aboriginal Student Space at a Canadian University
Smith, Natasha L.; Varghese, Jeji
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v53 n4 p458-469 2016
This article draws on a case study of the University of Guelph's Aboriginal Resource Centre (ARC) to identify the role that dedicated spaces have in the lives of Aboriginal students. Three roles that were identified include how these spaces build a sense of community, foster and enhance Aboriginal identity, and provide a safe space for Aboriginal Students. Recommendations for higher education and student affairs are included.
