Governor General encourages community-university partnerships

June 14, 2013

PSE institutions and communities together have the unique potential to bring about social change through partnerships and co-operation, Canada’s Governor General David Johnston told a crowd at a Community-University Expo in Corner Brook, NL last week. “Communities know what our needs are, and PSE institutions know the methods and possess the experience and expertise to help determine how to go about meeting those needs,” he said. He also said that a key to bringing about social change is to include youth in the discussion. “Young people make up the body of PSE institutions, and they are eager to make their mark in communities,” Johnston said.
