The First Nation Initiatives department is an arm of the President’s Office within Yukon University dedicated to integrating an understanding and awareness of Yukon First Nation culture, traditions and history.
Yukon University recognizes that a greater understanding and awareness of Yukon First Nations history, culture and journey towards self-determination will help build positive relationships among all Yukon citizens. All students are required to achieve core competency in knowledge of Yukon First Nations.
First Nations Support Services assists students seeking information about First Nations funding, and University and community resources. It also offers personal support.
We're taking great strides towards developing research and innovation in partnership with Yukon First Nations. Yukon University addresses challenges faced by Indigenous governments and connects researchers to Indigenous communities, their problems and their policy interests.
