Roslin Sinclair is completing her final term of a bachelor’s in history at uOttawa. One of her courses has been CDN4100 (Perspective-taking in Policy Development and Conflict Resolution), a Canadian studies course taught by Professor Tracy Coates, in which she chose the Community Service Learning (CSL) placement option.
To sum up, the festival received invaluable contributions from student volunteers, and the students received a great learning experience that will help them grow and gain new perspective going forward. The Ottawa Ice Dragon Boat Festival thanks both the students and the Centre for their efforts towards a successful festival weekend.
Darius Stamatakos, a first-year biopharmaceutical science student, already has a very impressive CV. In addition to doing his assignments, labs and exams, he works part time and is completing three volunteer placements. Because of this community involvement, he was awarded an Allan Rock Scholarship from the Michaëlle Jean Centre for Global and Community Engagement.
Over reading week, instead of relaxing and benefiting from the extra time to catch up on assignments, a team of seven students got together to perform a campus waste audit, to figure out what’s working and what’s not in terms of waste management.
The project took place as part of the Alternative Spring Break (ASB) program, hosted by the uOttawa Office of Campus Sustainability. Its goal is to determine how uOttawa can become a zero-waste campus, where we produce only things that are recyclable or reusable and we recycle or reuse everything else.
