Traffic at the Campus Food Bank continues to be steady with more than 200 visits for September, and it is looking like that for October as well. Fortunately, donations from both campus and the outside community also continue. We are often asked for eggs (which we do not supply) and of course meat is a treat. We have also been asked for "breads and grains". 

Social media outreach is increasing with Facebook and a new Instagram account.  Volunteers are always welcome, please see the following link for sign up times.

UPEI Experiential Education has scheduled several information sessions for faculty who are interested in learning more about Riipen, a virtual experiential learning platform that connects post-secondary educators with industry and community partners around the world. The platform provides a variety of support for educators, industry partners, and students to make the creation, management, and evaluation of online experiential learning opportunities easier for everyone involved. The platform is currently free to use for UPEI faculty, and could be a great option for those struggling to translate a traditional work-integrated learning experience to an online format.

Information sessions will be held online:

Thursday, November 5th, 12:00 -1:00 pm

Monday, November 9th, 12:00 -1:00 pm

Tuesday, November 10th, 3:30 -4:30 pm

We are looking for students to participate in our research study, called the "Cross-Canada Release of the Post-Secondary Student Stressors Index (PSSI)".

With your help, we can achieve our ultimate goal of improving mental health outcomes for students across Canada. We will be conducting 3 surveys over the course of the 2020-2021 academic year. As thanks for your participation, you will have an opportunity to enter into a raffle for a chance to win one of several $25-$50 gift cards at the end of each of these surveys.
