Navigation Coaches are a first point of contact for current Indigenous students and can help with everything from finding your way around campus, problem-solving, sharing important resources and information, understanding College processes and accessing community services. They will also help connect you with other important support team members, who together, can ensure you receive the help you need.
We know that in addition to your studies, your day-to-day life, your health and wellness, and your support network play an important role in your success. If you have any questions, whether it’s about how to access tutoring, learn about new information technology, or where to find child care, we can help you figure out those next steps. Please let us know how we can make the most of your time here at RRC Polytech.
