It was an opportunity for the Aboriginal students to voice what their needs were through individual interviews and focus groups. The Traditional Medicine Wheel was used as a framework to examine student life. The practicum addresses the issues of university education for Aboriginal students in the new century. It identifies the needs of students from a distinct Aboriginal perspective; and finally, it provides information about university services for this specific population. It also demonstrates some of the university's strengths and areas that require improvement in providing services for Aboriginal students. The title of this report is "A Needs Assessment of Aboriginal Students at the University of Manitoba."
