Experience Makes a Difference

Academic studies. Career exploration. Community involvement.

We aim to enrich undergraduate education in the Faculty of Social Sciences through fostering unique approaches to learning within the classroom and more actively engaging students in the community, as well as promoting strong relationships between academic studies, career exploration and community involvement.

Austerity and its Alternatives

This project seeks to expand conversations around alternatives to austerity between academics, non-academic researchers, practitioners, and policy makers. On this site you will find our work (under 'Research' and 'Media') created by our participants (listed in the 'About Us' page). We aim to mobilize knowledge across our network of academic and non-academic partners in a clear, concise, and informative way. Join the #altausterity conversation today.
