First Nations House of Learning

The First Nations House of Learning is often confused with the First Nations Longhouse, and either term will direct you to the same place, but technically, “The Longhouse” is the building, while ” The House of Learning” is the administrative unit that resides in and directs the use of the building.

The First Nations House of Learning has four main functions: organizing and providing Longhouse student services; overseeing public programming and use of the building; providing a point of contact for liaison with Aboriginal communities; and leading strategic planning on UBC Aboriginal initiatives.
