WUSC leader & alumnus visits campus
Paul Davidson, an alumnus of Trent (’83, Champlain College) and the new executive director of the World University Service of Canada (WUSC), visited the University on January 23 and 24.
He spoke with many students about international development, and was the guest speaker at a Trent International Program (TIP) colloquium on Friday, January 23.
"I was at the first TIP colloquium in the fall of 1983, the year I started at Trent," said Mr. Davidson. "I am excited to be speaking at the event in my current role and I’ve been impressed by all of the students I have met during my visit. They are first-class, and the local WUSC committee is a very vibrant group."
While at Trent, Mr. Davidson also spoke to a group of second-year politics students about his experience as a candidate in the last provincial election.
The World University Service of Canada is a non-profit agency with a focus on international development. Local committees at post-secondary institutions throughout the nations are involved with the group’s student refugee sponsorship programs. At Trent there are two WUSC-sponsored students pursuing university studies, and another student will be starting in September of 2003.
