Ruth Kroek

I was born and raised in the Cowichan Valley and began my undergraduate degree with Malaspina College and later completed a Masters Degree in Education from Simon Fraser University in 1996. I have been employed with Vancouver Island University since 1989. Since then, I have I have been fortunate enough to work with the Child & Youth Care First Nations Program & Arts One – First Nations as a program manager. I played a small part in the development of the BA in First Nations Studies. I have consulted and played active roles in many First Nations/Aboriginal programs at Vancouver Island University. My present role as an Education Counsellor & First Nations Student Support is one that is a good match for my skills, background and knowledge.

I believe that I have a respectful manner in working with students and prospective students. I am willing to spend time when planning their educational path.

Outside of Vancouver Island University, I have served on various boards that support Aboriginal education, health or sport. I am committed to all aspects of First Nations education.
