    Capilano University’s state-of-the-art Motion Picture Arts (MOPA) program produces some top-notch films each year, but when summer rolls around, the building stands empty and the equipment goes in for servicing.

  • Who you: HRMA

    Regardless of scope, businesses always have something in common — they rely on Human Resources (HR) to recruit employees, provide benefits and mediate disputes in the workforce.

  • Volunteering to save the world

    Volunteering is a noble endeavour. Whether you want to build some trails, feed the homeless or take care of some orphans in Malawi, volunteering can help strengthen our society and our world.

  • An argument for gender-inclusive washrooms

    Another year, another attempt for on-campus groups to advocate for gender-inclusive (or gender-neutral) washrooms. Despite appeals to equity, public health and safety concerns related to transgender, non-binary and queer folks, there is still a lot of fear about what gender-neutral washrooms would mean for public spaces, including universities. While the prevailing argument against these washrooms […]Read More »

    The unlearned society
