The First Nations House of Learning was established in 1987 and began its work of making the University’s resources more accessible to First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people out of a now-demolished wartime hut.
Six years later, in May, 1993, The House of Learning moved into the UBC First Nations Longhouse, an impressive building made possible by the dedication and hard work of students, faculty, staff, and community.
On Friday, April 19th, UBC will be celebrating 20 years since the opening of the First Nations Longhouse and the 25th Anniversary of the First Nations House of Learning.
Please join us in Sty-Wet-Tan, the Great Hall of the First Nations House of Learning as we mark this important milestone by celebrating the achievements of the past 25 years.
