In an internal review by Tim Brunet, the experiential learning coordinator, the findings indicated that the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (FAHSS) has heavily concentrated engagements with governmental and not-for-profit organizations for experiential learning partnerships.
While community engagement with not-for-profit and government organizations is an integral feature of the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (FAHSS), the knowledge networks in FAHSS must expand beyond these networks. As enrolments increase and as multinational companies have concentrated resources, we need to find creative ways to work on projects that include a broader scope of the community. This includes finding projects that connect student networks with small, medium, and large multinational organizations so that we can work together to positively impact the human experience.
The United Nations Global Compact and Sustainability Development Goals recognize this reality. In short, there are opportunities to access mutually beneficial partnerships, knowledge networks, and extensive resources that relate to the courses and departments in the Faculty of Arts, and Social Sciences.
