Your support is needed for the next generation of change-makers.

Student programs such as co-op placements, field studies and exchange programs are now critical to the enriched study of the social sciences. Community placements and public service opportunities also help students reach out and bring knowledge learned at the university to the community. All of these activities add additional financial burdens to students, but add significant value to their degree.
