UPEI student union establishes granting fund to improve campus life

September 9, 2016

The University of Prince Edward Island Student Union has launched a new program offering grants to students who are looking to make the university’s campus a better place, reports CBC. Student Union President Nathan Hood says that the initiative was inspired by a similar program at the University of Calgary, adding that “students are really passionate about ideas and projects, and I find one of the biggest barriers in supporting those ideas and projects is they don't have the financial backing.” Examples of possible projects include accessibility improvements, a bicycle repair station on campus, and a communal piano for students to play. CBC
