Western University is building a new Indigenous Learning Centre behind Ontario Hall and Perth Hall residences, which will open in Spring 2022.
The learning centre will facilitate and coordinate services and programming for the Indigenous community on campus.
“It is a community-driven space that features Indigenous identity, comforts needs and wants. It has been designed to be a welcoming space, a home, for our Indigenous students, staff, faculty and community,” said Paula Cornelius-Hedgepeth, the community relations and space coordinator with Western University’s Office of Indigenous Initiatives.
