WLU fostering better relations between students and neighbours

April 1, 2016

In light of complaints about bad behaviour and vandalism in the MacGregor Albert area of Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier University is working to educate students how to be good community citizens in an effort to foster better relations with neighbours, says Dean of Students Leanne Holland Brown. "We do feel a lot of responsibility to be educating our students about what it means to be part of our community, but I don't think it would be fair to refine 100% of the issues to Laurier students," says Holland Brown, later adding, "that doesn't diminish our responsibility as a university to be educating our students." The article goes on to explore proactive approaches to building relationships between students and the surrounding community. CBC (1) | CBC (2)
