Indigenous Students Collegium

2021/22 VISC Advisors

Do you self-identify as an Indigenous student at UBC Vancouver?

If so, UBCV’s two Collegia — UBC Collegia and the Vancouver Indigenous Students’ Collegium (VISC) — are designed for you to engage with peers and upper-year students to ask questions, learn about resources, and enjoy social events together.

First-year Indigenous students are encouraged to participate in UBC Collegia, while Indigenous students at all levels are welcome at VISC, located at the Longhouse.
