Trent unveils name for new college: Gigaa Migizi College 


Trent University has announced that its sixth college will be named the Gidigaa Migizi College after late professor and community leader Gidigaa Migizi (Doug Williams). The Anishnaabe name, which translates to “spotted eagle,” was proposed by the University’s Elders & Traditional Knowledge Keepers Council. “Gidigaa Migizi, a respected elder and a pillar in the Michi Saagiig Anishnaabeg and Trent communities, has left a lasting legacy that will continue to inspire and educate our students for generations to come,” said Trent VP, Communications & Enrolment Marilyn Burns. “Gidigaa Migizi College will stand as a beacon of knowledge, diversity, and respect.” The college will open in Fall 2028.
