12th Annual Aboriginal Education Advisors' Conference

Friday, April 21, 2017
Lister Hall Conference Centre, University of Alberta

In collaboration with Aboriginal Student Discovery Day, the Aboriginal Education Advisors' Conference provides educators, advisors, and education portfolio holders who work with prospective Aboriginal post-secondary students the opportunity to expand their knowledge and understanding of programs, requirements, and the types of support services at the University of Alberta.

Aboriginal Student Discovery Day is an annual, one-day event on North Campus for prospective Aboriginal students to learn about programs and requirements, take a campus tour, and hear from current U of A students. By blending these events, conference attendees have the opportunity to receive updates and program information before admission deadlines while interested prospective students engage in a fun day of supervised activities led by staff and trained volunteers.
