The purpose of ALP is to provide extra-curricular education as to the societal issues that UFV students will face as Canadian leaders. ALP provides all UFV students, particularly those in science, business, and faculties that generally do not study societal issues in detail, an opportunity to obtain insight into some of Canada’s pressing societal issues. The ALP program is a series of modules presented by community leaders and experts in various fields.
ALP aspires to create future leaders who will work to serve those less fortunate and advocate for positive change in society.
First, ALP strives to provide students with a fundamental understanding of various societal issues. ALP’s presenters provide students with a street-level, expert view of societal challenges faced by Canada and its citizens.
Secondly, ALP seeks to create empathy among UFV student leaders for those marginalized in society as the result of the failings of our political and economic system.
This transcript will be a valuable addition to a student’s resume portfolio.
