The mission of Aboriginal Student Services (AbSS) is to provide academic and cultural support for Aboriginal students. With that in mind, the Gathering Place for Good Minds moved to an updated space in 2016. The Gathering Place for Good Minds provides Aboriginal students with space that is more conducive for learning (student lounge, computer lab and library collection) as well as office space for staff.
In the Gathering Place for Good Minds, students find a home-like environment with Aboriginal art, comfortable couches, and staff members who connect with them on a personal level.
Aboriginal Student Services is also open to non-Aboriginal students interested in learning about Aboriginal culture or seeking Aboriginal resources.
