Kwantlen breaks ground for Aboriginal Gathering Place

March 30, 2009

Last Thursday, Kwantlen Polytechnic University held a sod-turning event to celebrate the groundbreaking of the school's Aboriginal Gathering Place, whose purpose is to encourage Aboriginal students to enrol at Kwantlen and to enhance support services that assist students in completing their studies. The Gathering Place will be created by renovating classroom space, a hallway, and 2 offices. A private entrance will open onto a forest, central courtyard, and pond. An independent mechanical system will be retrofitted so smudge ceremonies will not affect other areas of the building. Kwantlen News Release
