Cree word for "Welcome. There is room. There is space."

Through encouraging reciprocal exchange amongst students, staff and faculty, elders, alumni, and our larger communities, we honor that ta-tawâw Student Centre is a place where we celebrate and embrace our collective contributions as a community, and achieve the greatest heights of education.

The ta-tawâw Student Centre (formerly Aboriginal Student Centre) is a respectful and welcoming place that encourages student empowerment, identity, community connection and Indigenous ways of learning.  This space is a central hub for all students on campus, and a place to gather with others including Knowledge Keepers, alumni, faculty, staff and community members, creating a sense of belonging in the larger university environment.

The ta-tawâw Student Centre's main focus is on assisting Indigenous students':

  • Successful transition into University
  • Retention at the post-secondary level
  • Engagement in University events and activities
  • Successful completion of University
  • Transition into the workforce

The Centre’s focus is to support students, and with the involvement of the larger  campus community, create opportunities for intercultural and intergenerational exchange which strengthens our campus community,  and expands our potential for continual learning.

Indigenous students at the University of Regina, and the federated colleges of Campion College, Luther College and First Nations University are asked to self declare their Indigenous status when they log into the University’s self-service.
