Posters showcase social work graduate student research

No university program in social work can cover everything a practitioner requires, says Toni Parker: “The field is too diverse—that’s why we need continuing education and professional development.”

Her placement with Community Partners for Applied Research and Consultation was the subject of her research proposal, one of dozens presented during “Bridging the Gap: The Voice of Social Work,” Friday in the CAW Student Centre.

The master’s candidate says the event was a great chance to learn and network.

It all adds up: student athlete appreciates scholarship support

Neb Zachariah is used to giving her all. The second-year Master's in Human Kinetics student earns high grades and excels as a member of the Lancer track and field team. She captured the gold medal in triple jump at the Canadian Interuniversity Sport championships in March 2011.

Zachariah has many tools in her arsenal to meet the high goals she has set for herself on the field and in the classroom, from supportive professors to the best spikes. Among the most valuable, though, is the Blue and Gold Scholarship she earned as a top scholar-athlete.
