Media : WUSC at Trent University
WUSC is not restricted to the Local Committee that you see at Trent University. It is actually a national organization within Canada. There are dozens of other active Local Committees at educational institutions around the nation which are involved in projects geared towards making the world a more equitable place to live in. WUSC, at the national level, works with many other humanitarian organizations to foster human development through education and training.
Although WUSC at Trent University is currently promoting ‘VOTE YES!’ for the increase during this week’s elections, we thought that you should at least be aware of what WUSC is capable of doing and is doing elsewhere. Check out the following video compilation to see for yourself. Become inspired to take action and contribute to changing the world through education.
The IT/Communications Committee is looking for some new talent to take WUSC at Trent University to entirely new levels! If you have been considering joining the organization, but are unsure about where you can express your skills and talents, then consider joining the IT/Communications Committee.
Our committee is probably one of the smallest within the organization, but it does play an important part. Most of what we do overlaps with the activities of other committees and, as a collective, are able to get WUSC moving. However, as with all team-based groups, we need more people with new energy who will contribute their skills.
You may be asking yourself several questions about what is required of you in order to get started in the IT/Communications Committee. So we compiled a short FAQ to answer some of the common questions you may have. Feel free to ask any other questions you may have!
Before we continue, we would like to mention that you can volunteer your time by helping WUSC at Trent University in a variety of other capacities that have nothing to do with IT/Communications. Please check out our page for descriptions of what each committee is responsible for doing, then determine your niche.
Are you feeling like it is time to bridge the gap between theory and practice? Does the challenge of undertaking research in a cross-cultural environment pique your interest?

The Chair, Secretary, Committee Coordinators and the entire WUSC at Trent University Local Committee would like to thank Michel Tapiero for being our speaker during the World Water Day Symposium and also all those who helped out in some way to make the event possible, including those who just attended. Good work, everyone!
Special thanks also go out to Dan McRoberts and Paul McCarney who pioneered the idea of the event and were also responsible for most of the organization.
The fair is scheduled for Monday, 1st October, from 10:00am – 3:00pm in the Gzowski Atrium. If you can volunteer your time during these hours (for any length of time) to promote WUSC, please .
