Publications iconPublishing your research and writing is a fantastic way to share your knowledge and emerging ideas with a broader public. The Capilano Courier, The Liar, Canadian Journal of Undergraduate Research and the CapU hosted Journal of Childhood Pedagogies are a few local examples of magazines and journals publishing work by emerging writers and researchers.

Connect with faculty in your department for additional ideas for potential publication venues.

Workshops iconThe Career Development Centre, ChatLive, EarthWorks and the Writing Centre offer regular workshops to develop, hone and apply the knowledge and skills acquired in your courses. Many of these activities are eligible for inclusion on your co-curricular record, an official summary of your extra-curricular experiences at CapU that you can show future employers.

Committee iconA great way to gain experience is by becoming a student representative on a Faculty and Senate sub-committee, or by being elected to the University Senate or Board of Governors.
