Wednesday, September 12, 2012, the University of Manitoba, along with the University of Manitoba Aboriginal Students Association (UMASA) and the University of Manitoba Students’ Union (UMSU), will host a special open house and showcase at Migizii Agamik (Bald Eagle Lodge).
As part of Homecoming 2012 celebrations, everyone is welcome to join us for a full day of events where we will celebrate the University of Manitoba’s Indigenous alumni and connect with the Indigenous community on campus. The lunchtime celebration will include welcoming remarks from David Barnard, U of M president and vice-chancellor, and special guest alumni including Rod Bruinooge, MP for Winnipeg South and Treaty Commissioner James B. Wilson, both University of Manitoba alumni.
Included as part of the celebration of Indigenous achievement is a session of “speed networking,” where current Indigenous students can meet Indigenous alumni and business leaders within a set amount of time, and get the opportunity to see what others are doing in their professions and communities. The event is fast paced, energetic and of great advantage to both students looking to get an insight into career choices, and to Indigenous alumni already established in their fields.
9:00 am Speed Networking (preregistration required)
10:45 am UMASA & UMSU present Aboriginal Showcase (part of UMSU Orientation Week)
12:00 noon Homecoming Welcoming Remarks and Lunch
2:00 pm UMASA & UMSU present a Music Showcase featuring A Tribe Called Red
All events will take place in Migizii Agamik (Bald Eagle Lodge), 45 Curry Place at the Fort Garry Campus
