UWAFT works in collaboration with students from Wilfrid Laurier University (WLU) enrolled in the Lazaridis School of Business & Economics. The students work together to accomplish the communication goals for the UWAFT team. The communications team creates a communications plan each year as well as manages the social media accounts, plans and hosts events, solicits sponsorship from corporate partners and more.
Members of the communications team may also be eligible to receive credit (ie. BU480 or BU490) from WLU that can be used towards their degree. Team members have a choice of completing one or two terms in which they will receive 0.5 or 1.0 credits respectively.
Team members gain skills in:
- Event Planning
- Public Relations
- Project Management
- and much more!
