About Us

Indigenous Student Services (ISS) provides and connects Indigenous learners to the supports they need to achieve their academic goals.  We work to promote a safe place for Indigenous learners at McMaster by addressing barriers and providing holistic supports.

Our department grew out of the work and supports provided through McMaster’s Indigenous Studies Program.  In 2014, ISS became part of McMaster’s Student Affairs.  ISS is located in L.R. Wilson Hall, a community space shared with the Indigenous Studies Program.

ISS is honoured to support the experience and success of McMaster’s Indigenous learners.   In our outreach and recruitment, we promote McMaster as the university of choice.  Our team supports the transition to university life and offers a number of services to help Indigenous learners connect with their culture and pursue academic success.

Our team is part of a larger Indigenous community at McMaster and we welcome Indigenous learners from across campus to connect with us.
