At NEC, our strength is having a welcoming environment where our students feel comfortable and can connect or reconnect with their roots, culture, and traditions.

We have a number of cultural activities for students to participate in.  We also pride ourselves on being an inclusive and comfortable environment for everyone who walks through our doors, everyone is welcome in the Longhouse!
