Gain independence. Journey toward self-discovery. Embrace success. In the pimâcihisowin Foundation Program, you obtain the knowledge and qualifications you need to attend a post-secondary diploma or degree program.
pimâcihisowin, which means “to create a life of independence” in Cree, is designed to address the gap between your high school credential and the requirements you need to be admitted into a post-secondary diploma or degree program. Geared primarily towards Indigenous students, pimâcihisowin includes cultural support, mentorship and ceremonial events that help you achieve your post-secondary goals.
A home on campus
kihêw waciston, the Indigenous Centre at MacEwan University, is a place to gather, work and grow in a community that honours the distinctive knowledge of Indigenous peoples. The friendly staff and Elders look forward to meeting pimâcihisowin Foundation Program students.
