New Series Begins
Thursday February 8 with:
Freedom of Information Workshop
6-8pm, Room 3801 KPU Surrey Main Building
(3rd floor, classroom beside elevator)
Want to know how to ask tough questions and get solid information out of government and/or public agencies? Take your research to the next level with this workshop that will show you how to use “access to information” and “freedom of information” processes to dig deep and get out what the public needs to know.
This workshop, facilitated by Mike Larsen, an instructor in the Criminology Department at KPU, is geared towards participants who are engaged in social justice research. Participants will receive guidance regarding preliminary research, request preparation and filing, and navigating requests-in-progress.
All participants are asked to arrive with a research topic in mind. This topic should relate in some way to government policy and / or practice (including the activities of municipalities, government ministries, police, prisons, etc.).
Join us on the 3rd floor of the KPU Surrey MAIN building, ROOM 3801, across from the Crim.Dept.
We will be starting an on-going research support network to help students along through the process and with publication and dissemination of the information, so if you are interested in being part of this network, even if you cannot attend this Thursday event, please get in touch with us at <firstname.lastname@example.org> with your contact info and area of interest!
This event is FREE. All welcome. Wheelchair accessible, with accessible washrooms nearby.
We acknowledge we are conducting this work on unceded Coast Salish Territories, specifically the Kwantlen, Katzie & Semiahmoo Nations.
