  • End Day Zero Waste Week Laurier (Multi-Day Event)

    We're extremely excited to announce that the Sustainability Office will be hosting Laurier's first ever Zero Waste Week!

    The Zero Waste Movement is getting stronger and we're eager to be a part of it. Taking the step to go waste-free has countless environmental, economic and social benefits. It not only conserves our resources, but it also reduces our climate impact, promotes social equality and builds community.

    Tons of fun activities are planned for Laurier's Zero Waste Week starting March 4 with a new theme each day. We'll be kicking off Monday with a focus on awareness, followed by food, fashion and education over the course of the week. Stay tuned for film screenings, cooking classes, workshop series and much more. And don't worry – we have prizes too. By participating, you'll be entered for the chance to win daily prizes and of course... an exclusive grand prize!

    Visit our Facebook page @LaurierSustainabilty for more event details.

  • 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM Barry Ace: Coalesce, Mixed Media Installation (Opening)

    Join us to celebrate the final exhibition of the season.

    Coalesce presents a fusion of distinct Anishinaabeg aesthetics of the Great Lakes’ region with the refuse from Western society’s technological and digital age. This entanglement of materials intentionally shifts the object’s materiality and its accepted paradigm within the physical world. Through this integration and juxtaposition of recognizable Anishinaabeg materials used in Anishinaabeg material culture (e.g. glass beads, porcupine quills), with contemporary electronic materials (e.g. capacitors and resistors), the exhibition will challenge viewers to reject and re-examine notions of cultural status.

    10:00 AM - 4:30 PM Foundations in Teaching and Learning - Certificate

    Transferable skills associated with teaching are present in many aspects of our lives. From explaining a concept to a peer, tutoring a friend, to coaching a soccer team, teaching can take various forms. The Foundations in Teaching and Learning certificate is an opportunity for undergraduate students to gain a foundation for success in various teaching opportunities they encounter on a daily basis. This certificate will help you identify the skills associated with teaching and learning activities and communicate them to future employers, colleagues, and mentors. You will have the opportunity to put the skills you develop into practice in a safe and supportive environment through hands-on activities and microteaching sessions.

    Register for the session.

  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Celebrating Indigenous Education Week: The role of allies in Canada's reconciliation

    Canada’s reconciliation process has been one of fear, excitement, mis-steps, stumbles and victories. Throughout this process we as a country have been feeling our way through an unknown process that changes daily. Indigenous people are fairly sure of their role in this process, but what about non-Indigenous Canadians? Erin Hodson has some thoughts.

    Erin Hodson is Wilfrid Laurier’s Indigenous Curriculum Specialist. Erin is of Kanien'kehá:ka descent, Turtle Clan. She received her MEd with a focus on the Social and Cultural Context of Education from Brock University in 2017. For almost 10 years, Erin worked for the Tecumseh Centre for Aboriginal Research and Education where she created and taught courses focusing on Canadian history through the understanding of the Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island. Erin has been involved in several research projects investigating the state of Indigenous education in Canada. During her research, Erin has witnessed firsthand the benefits of engaging with Indigenous culture for both her own people’s sense of self within mainstream education and for benefit of non-Indigenous people. Erin has been an outspoken advocate for including Indigenous content throughout all levels of education.
