"A lot has changed in 2020, and it has forced all of us to reflect on our needs and direction. I joined the CPA with my start-up PASS Inc. in early 2020 and have enjoyed participating in CPA programming and community life when I have had the chance."
Engaging students in the work of peace advancement
Since its launch in 2014, the Centre has employed eight co-op students. Victoria Lumax, a third year English and Peace and Conflict Studies student, has just finished her second term as a co-op student at the Centre; she has been Communications Assistant for both the Winter 2020 and Fall 2020 school terms. The Centre is grateful for Victoria's attention to detail and hard work during these eight months!
