The date that you will move into residence will depend on which building and community you have been assigned. Check out the move-in schedule for more information about your timeslot.

  • 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM Laurier Milton Lecture Series: Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) in Schools & Communities

    Wilfrid Laurier University, the Town of Milton and the Milton Public Library are pleased to present the 2020-2021 Laurier Milton Lecture Series.

    Wilfrid Laurier has long supported the public role of academics to bring their knowledge and thinking outside of the classroom. The Laurier Milton Lecture Series provides a wonderful opportunity to engage in a public dialogue with citizens of Milton on a broad array of important topics. We are pleased that the presentations represent the current research and analysis of members of different faculties, departments and programs. 

    Lectures take place the second Wednesday of each month starting September 2020 and until May 2021 from 7- 8 pm. Lectures will take place via Zoom. Registration required and is free. Please register at beinspired.ca/lmls

    September 9th lecture will discuss Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) in Schools & Communities: Inequality of Opportunity & the Achievement Gap presented by Dr. Ardavan Eizadirad, Assistant Professor, Faculty of Education.

    Dr. Eizadirad will discuss the importance of centering Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) in schools and communities to create better supporting environments that reflect the needs of vulnerable students and community members. The goal is to advance the dialogue beyond critique to discussing action-oriented alternative approaches to mitigate systemic barriers perpetuated through inequality of opportunity. A case study of a community organization will be presented that works to close the achievement gap by providing programs and services that minimize the opportunity gap.

    Dr. Ardavan Eizadirad is currently an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Education at Wilfrid Laurier University and an instructor in School of Early Childhood Studies at Ryerson University and in the Master of Teaching program at OISE, University of Toronto. He is also an educator with the Toronto District School Board and author of Decolonizing Educational Assessment: Ontario Elementary Students and the EQAO.

  • 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM The Fight for History Book Launch

    The Laurier Centre for Military Strategic and Disarmament Studies is excited to announce its first ever Laurier Military History Webinar Series via Zoom! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person lectures have been postponed indefinitely, but we have been providing a platform for the newest scholarship in the study of war and society in history for over twenty-five years and will continue to do so––albeit in a different way.

    In our first event, historian and best-selling author Tim Cook will explore how the Second World War has been remembered, forgotten and remade by Canadians for 75 years. While the Great War became a touchstone, the legacy of the Second World War has been a more complicated struggle in Canada’s collective memory, coming to terms with battles won and lost, Canadians’ relationship to veterans, and how the post-war period created profound shifts in the country.

    Registration.
