Michelle Wickerson remembered through Memorial Award
Michelle Wickerson was a proud Social Work graduate who devoted her life to helping individuals in need through her work at the Distress Centre Calgary. Michelle passed away in 2016, and a Memorial Award in Social Work was created by her family and the Distress Centre in her honour. Giving Day April 27-29, provides everyone with the opportunity to support our Social Work Students with a gift of any size. All gifts are matched and tax-receipted.
Scholars from across the University of Calgary are coming together to advance and advocate for research supporting immigrants, refugees and international students. Social Work Associate Dean Christine Walsh suggests we need to better understand immigrant populations within homelessness research.
The University of Calgary is embarking on something special – our first-ever Giving Day. From April 27 to 29, we’ll be working to create 50 new scholarships in 50 hours in celebration of our 50th anniversary.
