Crossing borders: Students' stories from the field

Discover how UVic is connected to the world through research led by Canadian students in partnership with organizations from the Asia-Pacific region and Southern Africa. Recently-returned interns will share stories from diverse projects, including: a video on the Karenni Social Development Centre in Northern Thailand, a youth empowerment camp for young women in South Africa, participatory research in India and a vegetarian cookbook adapted from traditional recipes in Malaysia.  Come and learn about the power of community-based research and what happens when students get out of the classroom and into the field.
