Trish Monture Centre for Student Success

The Trish Monture Centre for Student Success has been renovated, expanded and renamed to serve you better. The office is now open in the Arts Building - rooms 248, 249, and 250. Students in both the Aboriginal Student Achievement Program and the University Transition Program are welcome to use the space for academic advising and studying purposes.

Our mission at the Trish Monture Centre is to encourage Aboriginal and Transition Program students in the College of Arts & Science. To do this, we use a holistic approach to advising that addresses the student as a whole person.

Trish Monture (1958-2010)

Trish Monture was a powerful Mohawk woman, an accomplished scholar, writer and activist, a loving mother and a highly respected faculty member in the College of Arts & Science. The renaming of the Aboriginal Student Achievement and Transition Program Office to the Trish Monture Centre for Student Success honours Trish's profound contributions to our college by offering students a place of peace, friendship and respect as they continue their studies at the University of Saskatchewan.
