Peter Gzowski College
Take a look at Gzowski College: Trent’s youngest college! Aniin. She:kon. Tansi. Boozhoo. Koolamaalsii. Welcome! Peter Gzowski College is in the big yellow building named Enwayaang. Enwayaang translates from Nishnaabewin as "The way we speak together." In other words? We play well with others, including the First Peoples House of Learning, with whom we share the building. Made up of a collection of dedicated and passionate students, Gzowski College is a place meant to unite the community’s roots with the new members who will define its future. Our college is named after Peter Gzowski, a Canadian journalist and broadcaster who made his living engaging in dialogue about Canada. Students at Gzowski College pursue their passions in the same way their college namesake followed his passion for Canada, its culture, the north, the Aboriginal people and the environment. Environmental sustainability, fair trade and indigenous ways of knowing are some of the themes that guide us. Watch for annual events such as a trip to the Curve Lake Pow Wow, a Ten Thousand Villages craft fair and the Rail Jam snowboarding competition. We also collaborate with our other neighbours in Enwayaang (the Departments of Indigenous Studies, Economics, Mathematics, Business Administration and the Office of Research) to bring you speakers and events.
