Working Groups at APIRG

One of the main focuses of APIRG is to provide funding and support for Working Groups. Our Working Groups are collectives of U of A students and community members who come to us with their ideas and passion for change. They work together on an issue that falls within the APIRG mandate, with a focus on research, events, actions, publications, or other diverse activities.

Working Groups represent the diversity of our membership and often introduce people to the organization.

 

 

What are Working Groups?

 

Working Groups (WGs) are collectives of students and community members who work together on an issue. WGs may focus on research, events, actions, publications, and other diverse activities. They tend to have long-term goals with activities and membership that continue beyond the current academic year. WGs are required to hold regular meetings and must maintain a membership that includes U of A undergraduates.
