Our mission is to create a safe(r) space where Indigenous students can feel valued, heard, and celebrated.

The Mawandoseg Centre aims to be a safe(r) space for Indigenous students at Carleton and works to address the specific needs of the various Indigenous communities in and around the university. The Centre is also the leading point of contact for non-Indigenous students looking to connect and learn more about Indigenous cultures and histories.

Programs at the Mawandoseg include:

  • Indigenous speaker events
  • Resources for Indigenous students and information about issues, cultures, and histories for non-Indigenous students
  • Panels and workshops regarding issues such as the environment, sexuality, mental health, and more
