Welcome to the Indigenous Wellbeing Series

The Indigenous Wellbeing Series is live! This monthly event series for Indigenous students, staff, and faculty will offer holistic and culturally relevant ways to make time for wellness. Student wellness is key to student success in meeting personal, career, and academic goals. The Indigenous Wellbeing Series is organized by UBC Rec and the Wellness Centre.
