Queen’s to expand Four Directions Aboriginal Student Centre space

October 25, 2017

Queen’s University’s Four Directions Aboriginal Student Centre will be expanding in order to meet recommendation 13 of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s final report. “When we found out that Four Directions was going to be expanded, we were all ecstatic,” said Queen’s Director of Indigenous Initiatives Janice Hill (Kanonhsyonni). “We were bursting at the seams there. To know that we’ve outgrown this space to the point where we’re doubling our size is amazing.” The expansion will see the neighbouring heritage house renovated, and Hill states that the team hopes to see the houses operate in two capacities: one for operational functions and one for dedicated study space and an accessible library. Queen's Journal
