“Below are some examples of how students and staff in our school continue to be change-makers. From book launches to awards, there remains much to celebrate as we look back on the fall term and all that was accomplished, despite the challenges we faced. I hope you enjoy learning more about the school and consider sharing your own successes in our next Newsletter, here.”

Jaspreet Bal is a part of the DUVE project which connects colleges from Denmark, Uganda, Vietnam and Humber here in Canada. The project aims to end violence in the respective countries and has set out to create an e-learning platform that serves this goal.
A 3rd year Bachelor of Behavioural Science student, Sarah Furlong, met with her local MPP in Caledon to express concerns about the changes to the Ontario Autism Program. The BBS Faculty and Program Coordinator, Jo Anne Nugent, are very proud of her advocacy efforts. A reporter from the local newspaper interviewed her about her efforts.
This past academic year, a group of Faculty of Social and Community Services students began to develop a potential non-profit agency. The Cycle Ends Now was initiated as a school project by four students in the Bachelor of Social Science - Criminal Justice program.

On a cold, blustery minus 15 degrees day in February, Community Development Degree students jumped into Lake Ontario to raise funds for the Special Olympics. Students helped to plan the Polar Plunge alongside Constable Ryan Park from the Toronto Police Services.
