December 13, 2018

Algonquin College has completed a $44.9M construction project dedicated to experiential learning and Indigenous cultures and heritage. The facility includes an Indigenous gathering circle and outdoor classroom, an Indigenous Learning Commons, and a space for Indigenous oration and storytelling. “When we gather [...] we will be warmed by the central fire that will burn brightly in the heart of our College,” said Algonquin President Cheryl Jensen, “a reminder of our spark of innovation, our passion for learning, and our commitment to a shared future.” Toronto Star NationTalk | Algonquin (ON)
