Indigenous Advisory Circle

Waterloo Indigenous Student Centre banner with half logo

The Indigenous Advisory Circle is a visionary and advisory body, working together to bring the issues and experiences, expertise and perspectives of Indigenous peoples to St. Paul's and the University of Waterloo. Members will consult regularly with representatives of Indigenous organizations throughout the country, and internationally, and with individuals who are working at the community level on Indigenous issues, and make recommendations to the University to achieve its objective of Indigenous inclusion.


The Indigenous Advisory Circle is composed of at least five Indigenous people, including two from First Nations communities, one each from Inuit and Métis communities, and one representative of non-Canadian Indigenous peoples. Two non-Indigenous members, the Principal of St. Paul's and the President of the University (or representative), sit as non-voting members.

Current members:


  • Marisha Roman (chair)
  • Brock Higgins
  • Grafton Antone
  • Eileen Antone

Ex-officio St. Paul's/UWaterloo:

  • Rick Myers, Principal, St. Paul's
  • Chris Read, Associate Provost, Students, UWaterloo
  • Lori Campbell, Director, Waterloo Indigenous Student Centre


The Advisory Circle meets three times annually at St. Paul's.
