Student Policies

Our Philosophy and Belief - the Foundation of Six Nations Polytechnic Board Policies

Click Here to Download Board Policies

If people do not keep pace with others perhaps it is because they hear a different drummer. Allow them to step in harmony to the music which they hear however measured or far away. Our cosmology places Native people in a balanced familial relationship with the universe and the earth. In our languages, the earth is our Mother, the sun-our Eldest Brother, the moon-our Grandmother, the plants and animals-our brothers and sisters. From this view, our people believe that all elements of the natural world are connected physically and spiritually and are to interrelate to each other to benefit the whole. The responsibility then falls on the people to peacefully maintain nature’s delicate balance to ensure that unborn generations can enjoy what we enjoy today. Six Nations Polytechnic accepts this responsibility and is devoted to facilitating the will and determination of our community to maintain an environmentally friendly world through education, training, and research.

Six Nations Polytechnic, a native-focused institution of learning, has a moral responsibility to the people to take a lead role in the preservation of our environment. Through the Hodinohso:ni`/Rotinonhshonni world view of our universe we will assist in the survival of life on this planet through research, the study of alternative views, and the dissemination of information.

Six Nations Polytechnic will endeavour to keep up with the beat of the 21st century and at the same time offer the understanding inherent in our language and culture. In this way, the people may receive an education that assists them to keep pace with both drums.

Six Nations Polytechnic will take a lead role in bridging the chasm of understanding between the two cultures of our lives and create an atmosphere for healing our differences so that we can both look with optimism into the 21st century.

Six Nations Polytechnic has the role and responsibility, as an institution of the people of Six Nations, to offer the opportunity to be educated to ensure languages and culture survive. It also has the responsibility to provide an education that enables our people to survive in both worlds.

Six Nations Polytechnic is becoming the catalyst that offers the opportunity and place for our Native scholars and elders to share their knowledge with all our people and to offer the non- Native an opportunity to study a different worldview.

Accommodation Plans

Student Accessibility and Accommodations
SNP will respect the dignity of persons with a disability and is guided by the Ontario Human Rights Commission in providing accessible education. It is understood that the accommodations process is a shared responsibility. Students with a confirmed or suspected physical, mental health, or learning disability are advised to make an appointment with the Student Success Officer as early as possible to initiate their request for accommodations. It is recommended that students request this appointment well in advance of the need for accommodation.

Are you a student with a confirmed or suspected disability or accommodation need? SNP has great resources to assist you. The Accessibility Navigator is available to help students navigate their way through the academic accommodations process.

Documentation Required
Proper documentation from the appropriate, registered health care professional is usually required before services may be provided. In the case of a learning disability, a recent psycho-educational assessment is required. Reports from previous special education services or disability services programs (IEP, IPRC, WSIB) are also helpful. All information provided to Student Success Services will be held in confidence and will only be released with the student’s informed consent.

Information shared with the Student Success Officer will not be released without your written consent and personal information is held in the utmost confidence.

Personal information including medical documentation and psycho-educational assessments is collected in order to understand student needs and provide reasonable disability accommodations as required under the Ontario Human Rights Code. Personal information is maintained in a secure manner, in compliance with relevant privacy legislation.

Nurses Student Spotlight – Lacey VanEvery

Lacey is a graduate of the first Practical Nursing in Aboriginal Communities (PNAC) cohort at SNP in 2006. She started her nursing career with SNP as a young mom. After graduating from the PNAC program, Lacey worked as a Registered Practical Nurse (RPN) for years. She wanted to make changes in health for her community, so she continued in her education. Lacey went on to our RPN to BScN bridging program and earned her Bachelors of Nursing and then her Masters of Public Health at McMaster University.

Lacey then began working at Six Nations Public Health as a community nurse and moved into the role as Nurse in Charge in June 2020 providing leadership throughout the pandemic. She now works for Indigenous Services Canada as the Acting Nurse Manager for Southern Ontario and Thunder Bay South Zone.

Lacey found SNP programs culturally relevant which, was important to her, especially in developing patient relationships. She believes having nursing programs available in our community increases health care staff who are better trained to work with Ogwehoweh people. Lacey notes that many of her current staff and colleagues are graduates from SNP as well!

Lacey is a very accomplished SNP alumni and we congratulate her on her achievements in education and nursing. SNP would like to send a big nya:węh to Lacey, all of our nursing alumni as well as Six Nations community nurses who provide essential health care services to our community!
