Student Leadership Committee
The Canadian Rivers Institute (CRI) is a dynamic, interdisciplinary network of world-class scientists, innovative researchers and creative, passionate students at all levels.
The core of the CRI is the effective multi-disciplinary teaching and training in aquatic science to produce highly qualified water resources scientists, professionals, and policy makers across Canada and beyond its borders. CRI succeeds in this task by supporting the instruction students and researchers receive at their home institution, offering professional training, field courses and scholarships, providing forums for networking though with career-building retreats and professional platforms for developing presentation and communication skills, as well as supplying diverse leadership opportunities within and beyond the CRI community.
The CRI Student Leadership Committee (CRI SLC) is an integral part of the CRI student experience. The SLC is a primary communication link between CRI students and CRI network members. The SLC organizes student engaging and educational events and provides support and resources for every stage of students’ programs. Students’ respective campuses/institutions also possess a CRI SLC member to serve as an institution-specific resource who can also present student concerns and opinions to the CRI community. The SLC gives students the chance to make a difference and demonstrate leadership by volunteering to become a member of the SLC during his/her degree program.
