The Minowaadiziiwin Wellness Centre

Confederation College

Confederation College recently formally recognized the $8.5 million contribution from its Student Union (SUCCI) to its new Wellness Centre. The event highlighted the significant support of students, and together, Confederation College and the Student Union announced that the name for the new facility would be SUCCI Wellness Centre, “Minowaadiziiwin”.

Officials noted it was important to honour the incredible student contribution and to incorporate an Indigenous name to respect the traditional lands the facility is built on, as well as to represent the College’s longstanding ties to Indigenous education. The name Minowaadiziiwin means “Lead a Good Life” which perfectly reflects the values of the facility and is hoped to inspire students and community members to do just that.
