The CIR:CLE works with and for students in initiatives that improve the Kwantlen student engagement and learning experience.
We benefit students through a wide range of opportunities – we hope you pursue these initiatives and allow us to become a part of your success story! They include:
- One-of-a-kind educational opportunities to explore real-world issues and to apply real-world skills. This role of CIR:CLE has manifested itself in two Kwantlen criminology project courses so far. One of these, for example, was a spring 2011 course led by Dr. Evelyn Zellerer. This fourth-year criminology project course helped evaluate the Bridges program through the Surrey School District.
- Funding for student research through our engagement fund. Students can apply for funding towards research projects. For more information, please visit our Get Involved! page.
- Relationship-building is instrumental in many jobs; we help you begin to make those crucial connections. CIR:CLE acts as a liaison between students and valuable community contacts. CIR:CLE can help students develop these connections for school-based projects and can provide mentorship services in this context.
- Students have the opportunity to participate in unique and innovative events that reflect the interdisciplinary nature of CIR:CLE. Past events supported and/or organized have included the Anatomy of a Riot town hall discussion and the Forbidden Phoenix town hall discussion, among others. And for those who attend, there is the added benefit of free food!
- Above all, CIR:CLE strives to promise and deliver fun!
