Queen’s highlights connections between innovation, wellness with new centre

October 13, 2016

Queen’s University is set to bring together the worlds of innovation and wellness through the creation of its new Innovation and Wellness Centre. The centre’s construction will be supported in part by a recently announced $31M investment from Canada and $4.9M investment from Ontario. Combining innovation and wellness services in a single centre is a decision that stems from the findings of the university’s Principal’s Commission on Mental Health. The centre will strive to blend academic, recreational, and other student life activities in order to emphasize the relationships between mental health, physical wellbeing, and academic success. The federal and provincial funds will also support the revitalization of on-campus biomedical research facilities at Queen’s. Queen’s Gazette | CKWSTV
