Indigenous Students’ Commissioner
My name is Lorie Fuentes and I am your Indigenous Students Commissioner. I am currently in my 4th year in the Social Work program. I am an Anishinaabekwe from Curve Lake First Nation.
I see this position as an opportunity for LU Barrie students to work collaboratively to ensure that Barrie campus is a safe, historically educated, and culturally aware environment regarding issues that face Indigenous peoples in Canada. I encourage all Barrie students to join our “Indigenous Student-Community Partnership” Facebook group.
I also encourage FNMI students to join our new Facebook group “FNMI Students Circle” , which is intended be a forum for students who identify as FNMI to share resources, offer support, and belong to a collective of fellow indigenous students.
My LSU office hours are on Monday 1PM-5PM. You can reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by joining our new Facebook groups!
Baamaapii N’gwaabmin! (I’ll see you later!)
