Renison friend and supporter Keith Hipel recently received the prestigious Killam Prize for his work in Engineering. The prizes, presented by the Canada Council for the Arts, are awarded to scholars who have made significant contributions to their field.
In a project that is described by a group leader as “empowering,” Renison Associate Professor Trish Van Katwyk recently published a study that explores the way that youth see themselves in the term ‘resilience.’ “Resilience Beyond Risk: Youth Re-defining Resilience Through Collective Art-Making,” used art-making and conversation to explore the ways in which labels that are often applied to young people are understood by young people themselves.
Reconstruction of our parking lot has been approved. The project has been tendered and awarded to Kieswetter Excavating/Schorn Consulting.
The benefits of the reconstructed parking lot will be: improved lighting, drainage, aesthetics and additional parking for our guests.
The first phase, geological testing, is already underway. The second phase is scheduled to start May 1 and achieve substantial completion August 15. There will be nearly no on-site parking May 1 through August 15. No access to the current lot is planned as of May 1.
