About the Center

"Adawe" means "to trade or exchange."

The Adawe LifePlan center was created to be a free marketplace of ideas, somewhere safe for students to engage in big or small discussion and develop ideas and passions.

It was started several years ago at the suggestion of Ottawa University President Kevin Eichner. An Ottawa University alum, President Eichner credits his professors, mentors and advisors with helping him develop as a whole person and explore different career opportunities. He wanted all Ottawa University students to have an experience that empowered them to succeed, and so the Adawe LifePlan center was born.
