The health and safety of the participants of our Hub events, and team members is always a top priority in the midst of the evolving situation with COVID-19. In response to the guidance provided by the University, the Research Hub has cancelled or postponed all Hub-related events until further notice.  We will continue to monitor the situation at the University and follow up on any information from the Faculty of Education. During this time of unpredictability, let's remember to be kind to each other.  Please email if you have any questions.

Dr. Lynn Fels
