Acadia receives $1M gift toward student centre project

Acadia University has received $1M from the Acadia Alumni Association toward the $24M “Build: The Student Centre” fundraising campaign. The aim of the campaign is to raise funds to revitalize Acadia’s student centre into a modern hub for student life, learning, and leadership. The new facility will prioritize inclusivity, accessibility, and wellbeing; provide dedicated spaces for students of African descent, Indigenous students, and international students; and offer health and counselling services and accessible learning resources. “The campaign is about creating a space that reflects the diverse needs and aspirations of today’s students in a space that is modern and efficient,” said Acadia Alumni Association President Matt Rios.
