Mawi'omi Centre

The word Mawi'omi means “gathering place” in Mi’kmaq. This name was chosen after consulting with Mi’kmaq Elders from the community. The idea of having such a physical area on campus is to provide students with support (talking circles), a place to study and relax between classes, and host events/meetings while attending UPEI.

Support services that the centre offers includes the following:

  • Mentoring and tutoring
  • Assisting with course selection
  • Assisting with registration/university related issues
  • Assisting with finding funding, employment, volunteer, and other opportunities
  • Assisting with finding resources (on or off campus)
  • Providing referrals if needed
