Respect lives here At Georgian College, we're lucky to have students from all over the world with a diverse range of backgrounds, cultures, orientations, skills and experiences. We believe that respect is a human right and at Georgian we want to foster and promote a supportive, inclusive environment. We want to challenge the attitudes, beliefs and behaviours that fail to recognize human dignity and teach and model appropriate ways to interact with others. At Georgian, we promote respect for community, relationships, environment, and self. There are Aboriginal Resource Centres at the Barrie, Midland, Orillia and Owen Sound campuses. Self-identifying as an Aboriginal student helps us help you. Georgian has a number of unique programs and services specically for Aboriginal students. These programs and services are designed to help support students all throughout their studies at Georgian. There are several scholarships and bursaries designated specically for Aboriginal students; visit Aboriginal Services to learn more. Things to know this month: • Take part in the PowWow at the Barrie Campus on Mar. 12 • Co-op students can register for summer semester co-op work term starting March 16 • Talk to your First Year Advisor about mature student networking events at your campus Jenna Hubbard There will be many opportunities on campus to meet students from diverse backgrounds.
