Capilano U opens Aboriginal Student Centre

February 5, 2013

February 1 marked the official opening of Capilano University's Aboriginal Student Centre. Kéxwusm-áyakn (A Place to Meet) -- the Squamish Nation name given to the centre -- provides a welcoming, multi-purpose space for students to meet, study, share meals, collaborate, and learn from each other and First Nations elders. The BC government invested $600,000 in the centre, which provides a community hub used by Capilano U's First Nations Student Services department advisors, faculty, staff, students, and the institution's Aboriginal community. The centre features a kitchenette, computer work stations with Internet access, and a lounge area with video screens. BC News Release
