First Nations House of Learning

The First Nations House of Learning (FNHL) is often confused with the First Nations Longhouse, but technically, the Longhouse is the building, while the First Nations House of Learning is the administrative unit that resides in and directs the use of the building.

FNHL 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. FNHL is the lead unit for coordination of the Aboriginal Strategic Plan.
