November 15: Building MSU Families, a new program to
support Indigenous students’ well-being and build family across MSU

SUB 168, 12-1 pm

We all benefit from more connection and family. The Building MSU Families program is an exciting opportunity for Indigenous students and MSU faculty/staff to develop relationships that build family and community during and after the students journey at MSU. Building MSU Families links Indigenous students with a faculty/staff member to provide a connection, boost, and support, such as what a family member provides. They are a student’s local auntie/uncle/relative. The presenters will share information about this new program at MSU.
