Members of the Brandon University (BU) chapter of World University Service of Canada (WUSC) are keeping up their efforts to assist refugee students despite the challenges of COVID-19.
The non-profit organization, with chapters across Canada, administers the Student Refugee Program (SRP) each year, helping students to feel safe, welcomed and supported as they pursue their educational dreams in their new home. The most important role WUSC fills is by providing financial assistance to refugee students, enabling them to receive a post-secondary education and pursue permanent residency in Canada.

A long awaited furniture renewal in McMaster Hall will benefit more than the students who move into the Brandon University (BU) residence.
The old furniture that made generations of BU students feel at home will continue to be put to good use, helping hundreds of community members.
