The First Nations University of Canada (FNUniv) has unveiled its new recruitment brand with the launch of its revamped website and a new program catalogue. Both the website and the catalogue feature FNUniv’s engaging new design and tag-line, “What’s Your Soul Reason?”.

This open-ended question, with its clever play on words, provides an opportunity for people to articulate the many reasons that they have chosen to make FNUniv part of their educational journey. In listening to stories of Elders, students, faculty and staff, it was clear that all had their own “soul reason” for being involved with this special institution.

The campaign draws upon and promotes the University’s strengths and attributes as a truly unique Indigenous post-secondary institution, where education is combined with First Nations culture, history and values, including inclusivity, respect and spirituality. FNUniv has been a leader in Indigenous education for nearly 40 years.
