As members of the UVic community from poverty or working class origins ourselves, we recognize that our backgrounds come with shared strengths and experiences, as well as unique challenges that continue to influence our work and life at UVic.

With your help, we plan to create a community of friends and mentors to support our success at UVic and beyond. Future plans include, but are not limited to, increasing access to resources, building partnerships with community and University service providers, and hosting social events for our community.
