University of Regina Justice Studies Class Project

Saskatchewan Seniors Mechanism was part of a very exciting project with Professor Gloria DeSantis and her University of Regina Justice Studies Class on Nonprofit Sector Leadership & Innovation.  Professor DeSantis chooses a community based organization for her class to work with and we were fortunate she chose SSM. Our involvement included working with Professor Gloria DeSantis to choose and describe 5 issues of importance to SSM.  Her class came to our office to meet with 10 senior volunteers to discuss the issues.  The class then developed strategies and returned to present them.

These terrific presentations are, with the students’ permission, now available.
