Mawi’omi Indigenous Student Centre

Bohzoo, Jasmine Ndizniikkaaz ndoonjbaa Anishnabewaki.

Hello, my name is Jasmine and I am from Ontario, welcome all to the Mawi’omi home page. I look forward to learning more about your story as you begin this new chapter. As the Mawi’omi co-ordinator, I am here to support First Nations, Metis, and Inuit applicants through the application process and the transition to post-secondary studies. The Centre aims to be a safe space for Indigenous students to access Indigenous-specific events and services both on and off campus.

We can also help navigate other UPEI services and opportunities like academic advising, bursaries, scholarships, or student wellness.

The space is yours and will be created using your feedback so please do not hesitate to contact me and introduce yourself. There is always a cup of tea waiting for you at the Mawi’omi Centre.

The UPEI campus is home to a tipi, an Indigenous structure that was erected between the Kelley Memorial Building and the W.A. Murphy Student Centre in the Spring of 2022.

Twenty-seven community organizations received a total of $657,453 through the Government of Prince Edward Island’s Gender, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion (GEDI), and Community Enhancement Program to support healthier, more inclusive, diverse communities across PEI. Two of those recipients were the UPEI Experiential Education Department and the UPEI Mawi’omi Indigenous Student Centre.
