We acknowledge that our campus at King's University College is situated on the traditional territories of the Anishinaabeg, Haudenausaune, Lenaapeewak, and Attawandaron peoples, all of whom have longstanding relationships to the land of Southwestern Ontario and the City of London. The First Nations communities of our local area include Chippewas of the Thames First Nation, Oneida Nation of the Thames, and Munsee Delaware Nation. And in our region, there are eleven First nations communities, as well as a growing indigenous urban population. King's University College values the significant historical and contemporary contributions of local and regional First Nations, and all of the Original Peoples of Turtle Island (also known as North America).
King’s has allowed me to reconnect to education in a loving, surreal way that no other place can. When I think of King’s I picture diversity, accommodating, and willingness to connection with all races and ages. You can walk throughout the campus and feel that you are at home as the teachers, staff, and students embrace your goals and aspirations. No matter what your background or age is everyone makes you feel welcome and a part of the King’s family.
I especially love the First Nations courses as this enlightens me to my culture and my willingness to further my own goal of becoming a social worker, and working with not only with First Nations but with Veterans. I spent many years in the military, so I know about a willingness to sacrifice and acknowledge those who have also made sacrifices. I work with veterans and their families when dealing with physical and mental disabilities as I am also a survivor of those disabilities. It is through the King’s way of educating and accommodating students I know I will be successful and can benefit everyone I touch in my future endeavors.
