People at Laurier
Jen Mt. Pleasant is a graduate of the Honours Criminology program, with Minors in Contemporary Studies & Law and Society at Laurier Brantford. She plans on using her education as a tool to fight discrimination against Aboriginal women/girls and help raise awareness about the increasing number of Aboriginal women/girls being murdered or going missing across Canada. Jen credits the Criminology program at Laurier Brantford in helping her find direction in her academic life. She is also grateful to the staff of the Office of Aboriginal Initiatives for helping her tremendously throughout her studies at Laurier. Jenís advice to all new and returning students is: Donít be afraid to ask for help. Thatís the main purpose of the Office of Aboriginal Initiatives Ė to help students achieve their goals. If you are having problems financially, mentally, spiritually or academically, always make sure to ask for help. The Aboriginal Student House at Laurier Brantford is located at 111 Darling Street.
