Indigenous Student Access Pathway

Pjila'si & Welcome


My name is Art Stevens and I am the Manager of Indigenous Students on Dalhousie's Agricultural Campus in Truro, Nova Scotia.

I want to support your academic journey every step of the way. Dalhousie's Faculty of Agriculture in Truro offers the Indigenous Student Access Pathway (ISAP), which is a vaulable step toward your university degree.

Our one-year program offers First Nations, Métis and Inuit students an opportunity to complete university courses in our culturally supportive and friendly campus community in Truro, Nova Scotia. It is open to direct-from-high-school students, mature students and those with previous post-secondary experience who have some but not all of the pre-requisites for standard admission.

If you would like to know more about ISAP, please reach out to me directly at I can also be reached in my office at 902.896.4486 or 902.956.9270.
