Tekwanonwera:tons (Welcome) to Queen's University! My name is Vanessa McCourt, and I am your Aboriginal Advisor. I am Kaienkeha (Mohawk) from Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory. I am a wife, mother, auntie, student, sister, daughter, granddaughter and helper.
I graduated from Queen's in 2002 with a medial in Sociology and Health Studies. I began my work here in 2007. I am currently completing my Masters of Education in Sociology and Equity Studies at OISE, UofT.
My role is to support you with any non-academic questions or concerns that may arise. I provide personal support, liaison with other departments and faculties, and organize our cultural and social programming events at Four Directions.
I feel it is important to create a supportive environment for our diverse First Nations/Inuit/Metis/Status/Non-Status/Two Spirited/On- Reserve/Urban/ Mixed Ancestry students on campus.
For fun, I enjoy playing beach volleyball and lounging outside with a good book.
I look forward to meeting you!
