MRU: Criminal Justice Field School to Rankin Inlet, Nunavut

MRU: Criminal Justice Field School to Rankin Inlet, Nunavut

Our campaign aims to cover air travel expenses for three students travelling to Rankin Inlet, Nunavut. The Criminal Justice Field School to Rankin Inlet is a community service learning course within the Criminal Justice Degree Program at Mount Royal University. The course gives students a real-world opportunity to work alongside justice professionals so that they can compare how the justice system operates in a remote Northern community (versus a Southern city such as Calgary). The course also provides students with an opportunity to listen and learn from the Inuit people of Canada's North. Students pay for the course tuition, the airfare and accommodations for two weeks in Rankin Inlet, but travelling to northern Canada is expensive. Furthermore, the Inuit are an intimate people and Rankin is a hamlet of approximately 2500 people; therefore our field school cannot support taking 15+ students, which would then help offset the high costs. Instead, we can only take a small group of students while the travel costs remain high.
