Statement from FNUniv about the Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission
June 2, 2015 - Today’s release of The Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission on the experiences of those who attended residential schools will bring long overdue recognition of the terrible injustices inflicted on Indigenous children and their families in the past, and of the lingering effects of those injustices, which pervade every imaginable aspect of the lives of Indigenous people today. First Nations University of Canada (FNUniv) welcomes the release of this report, and acknowledges the courage of survivors in telling their stories.

First Nations University of Canada Launches New Website and Recruitment Campaign
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.
