Reconciliation and the Media

In response to the TRC Calls for Action, a group of journalists and community members have come together to host the Reconciliation and the Media gathering in Saskatoon on October 4-5, 2016. The intent is to build bridges between media organization managers, working journalists, and Indigenous people, and together find paths to a renewed relationship. We are proud to help sponsor this event. Register here!

Grant & Proposal Writing: This course is designed for individuals tasked with developing funding proposals to granting agencies, in order to support projects or ongoing programming. What will you come away with? We will train you to think strategically in the development of your project proposal. As well, you will gain key insights into what funding agencies are looking for in their project submission calls.

We offer the Toolkit Workshop Series along with RPIRG, STOPS to Violence, and the U of R Career & Professional Development Office. You can register online, or learn more here.
