    Advocate for social justice, freedom of movement and children’s rights #351 Ilona

    I worked for a comms agency that’s worked with the European Delegation as Slovenia was preparing to join the EU. We had a referendum of our own and it was the vast majority of people, I think about 89%, voted to join the EU. And so I really grew to believe in the dream of why Europe had been set up, or the European Union had come about as a way of integrating countries. I came to London originally to study, I did Social Psychology, and I was interested in a career in a social justice organisation, particularly working with children and young people. We’re doing a lot at the…

    What We Do – Student Advocacy Office

    As a Concordia student, you probably wouldn’t be surprised to know that Concordia has a system of rules and regulations that governs the way everyone within the University community studies, works, and interacts. These are just like the laws of our province and country, except that these rules only apply to the community of students, faculty and staff that make up Concordia University. The Academic Code of Conduct is the University’s rulebook that deals with situations like cheating in exams or plagiarism. If you find yourself in any of these situations, you’d probably want to know what your rights are and what you should do next. The Student Advocacy Office…

    What Happens If I Fall Behind on Child Support or Spousal Maintenance Payments?

    Amanda Szpakowski: My name’s Amanda Szpakowski. I am the family law legal assistant here at the Bornmann Law Group. I specialize in anything family law-related; custody, visitation, father’s rights, anything family law. If someone was to fall behind on their child support or spousal maintenance, what we could do is we would usually file a petition to enforce the child support or spousal maintenance. If they are behind, it goes into what’s called arrearages, and they’re required to pay those as well. If someone is extremely behind in child support and spousal maintenance, it can result in incarceration. If we do a petition to enforce the child support, we can…

    UW Bothell – Violence Prevention Advocacy

    Hi! My name is Elizabeth and I manage the violence prevention and advocacy program at UW Bothell and Cascadia College.

All people impacted by sexual and relationship violence have the right to receive support, whether they decide to report or not. Whether you’ve experienced harm…

    Student Advocacy Office – Academic Integrity

    What does “academic integrity” mean? You might hear the term tossed around by academics, but it’s important for you to have a good, clear understanding of what it means. Concordia’s Academic Code of Conduct defines Academic Integrity as “honesty, responsibility, and fairness in all aspects of academic life”. Everyone in the university community is expected to hold these values. But sometimes, academic integrity takes a back seat and an academic offence is committed. The Academic code of conduct lists 12 examples of possible offences. The most common ones include plagiarism, unauthorized material or devices during an exam or collaborating with students on individual assignments. Concordia’s Academic Code of Conduct defines…
