** The QPIRG board is comprised of twelve members, with six spots reserved for Concordia students (undergrad or graduate) and six for community members with past volunteer experience with the organization. Being a member of the board means attending biweekly board meetings, joining one or more board committees, and taking on additional tasks as necessary throughout the year. It is an average 10hrs/week commitment and a fantastic learning opportunity! Please get in touch for more details: firstname.lastname@example.org.
QPIRG Concordia’s Mandate:
The Quebec Public Interest Research Group at Concordia is a resource centre for student and community research and organizing. We strive to raise awareness and support grassroots activism around diverse social and environmental issues. Our work is rooted in an anti-oppression analysis and practice. We seek to make campus-community links and inspire social change through engaging, inclusive and non-hierarchical approaches.
QPIRG Concordia is committed to being inclusive and accessible to all. We are actively opposed to all forms of discrimination and oppression. QPIRG is a volunteer-driven, student-funded, non-profit organization that is independent from the Concordia administration and student union. Both students and community members are welcome to make use of our space and resources as well as participate in QPIRG projects.
QPIRG looks forward to seeing our commitment to inclusivity and accessibility reflected in our board membership.
