Social Sciences Outreach is a set of programs supported by the Faculty of Social Sciences that connects our current students and faculty with future members of our community. Through our activities, we wish to:

  • Educate and inspire pre-university students to pursue careers in social sciences
  • Develop positive relationships between the University and the community
  • Enhance the student experience for our current undergraduate and graduate students
  • Recruit undergraduate students by giving them first-hand experiences of social sciences education
