The University of Regina is pleased to announce the launch of UR Days – a travelling education expo and speaker series geared toward energizing and inspiring the next generation of U of R students. Throughout the month of May, President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Jeff Keshen will be joined by U of R faculty and staff as he tours the province to meet future students at high schools in Weyburn, Yorkton, Swift Current, Regina, and Prince Albert.

Through a variety of classroom activities, along with an on-site information expo, students will learn all about our dynamic academic and athletic programs, cutting-edge research, and what campus life has to offer at the U of R.

“I look forward to travelling around the province and meeting with the next generation of U of R students. Our University is a wonderful place to receive an affordable, top-quality post-secondary education,” said Dr. Keshen. “We set our students up for both life and career success and I am so proud to show off the best of what the U of R has to offer.”

The U of R will also host a free, open to the public, evening speaker series in Regina and Prince Albert.

Dr. Erica Carleton, U of R Assistant Professor and RBC Women in Leadership Research Scholar, will join in Regina. Dr. Carleton’s presentation will discuss her background and work at the University of Regina, as well as her current research on the topic of leadership, gender, and well-being.

Dr. Raven Sinclair will join us in Prince Albert. Dr. Sinclair is a Sixties Scoop survivor and University of Regina Professor and researcher. She has studied the Sixties Scoop and Indigenous Child Welfare in Canada for two decades, most recently with the support of a five-year Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Insight Grant. Dr. Sinclair will discuss what the Scoop is, her experiences being raised in a white family, and why research is an awesome tool for providing evidence-based recommendations for policy and program changes to child welfare.
