UW Community Engagement Initiatives Report Launch

From Access to Engagement: Initiatives at The University of Winnipeg in Support of Educationally Marginalized Children and Youth, 1988-2017

Please join us for the launch of our report on 15 of the University’s many initiatives over the years to welcome and engage educationally marginalized children and youth. Our short program will begin at 12:30 p.m. with greetings from President Annette Trimbee and Community Learning and Engagement Director Jarita Greyeyes, followed by a brief project-talk by lead researcher Catherine Taylor.  Most of the event will be an opportunity to talk to the researchers, who will be on hand with a poster display of their projects. Light refreshments (sandwiches, veggies and dip, coffee) will be served.

Wednesday, December 6, 12:30–2:00 p.m.
