VIU health centre could help university achieve CIS designation

November 26, 2010

After being turned down in its bid to join Canadian Interuniversity Sport, Vancouver Island University's student services is redoubling efforts to build a bigger gymnasium, which would include a health and wellness centre for students and the community on the Nanaimo campus. The centre would include access to doctors and nurses for students and Harewood residents, and could help VIU in future bids for CIS designation with the Canada West Universities Athletic Association conference. A bigger gym and health centre still needs approval by the university's board of governors in the 2011-12 budget before it can become a reality. Nanaimo Daily News
