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.
Rick Green will be joining us at Renison University College (Renison) tomorrow October 17, to talk to us about his experience of getting a degree with ADHD. Green was diagnosed years after graduation but has insightful information and advice to share with everyone.
