Brock unveils new name for First Nations, Métis and Inuit student centre

Brock University’s Aboriginal Student Services has been renamed the Hadiyaˀdagénhahs First Nations, Métis and Inuit Student Centre. The Cayuga word Hadiyaˀdagénhahs means “they are helpers,” and the name describes the centre’s purpose as a welcoming home for First Nations, Métis, and Inuit students. The name change reflects the enhancement of existing services and the creation of new opportunities at the centre. “[W]e are undertaking a reconfiguration of our centre that enhances existing services and creates new opportunities,” said Brock Acting Vice-Provost, Indigenous Engagement Robyn Bourgeois. “It was important to mark this transition with a name change, and one that reflected one of our local languages.” Brock Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
