The Office of Research Services is pleased to announce the April 2022 edition of the Student Research Café series!

Please RSVP here to join us for this event on Wednesday, April 13 at 1 p.m. in the Indigenous Knowledge and Research Centre (AW124).


What is the Student Research Café?

The Student Research Café provides an opportunity for students and researchers to meet informally, and for students to engage directly with researchers.

Students will be invited to ask questions about topics ranging from research in an academic environment to career choices and entrepreneurial opportunities.

This month, students will have the chance to meet Tanya Ball.
