A Place to Think, Imagine, and Create Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. nelson mandela

The Importance of Liberal Arts A liberal arts education is essential in the 21st century. At King’s, liberal arts ideals become real-world skills. Knowing how to think critically, synthesize creatively and collaborate effectively are skills all valued in the workplace. A King’s education is designed to help you develop your strengths while allowing you the opportunity to discover new challenges. You will graduate with all the necessary tools to pursue both a rewarding career and a meaningful life.

2018 Award Winners for the King’s Award for Teaching Excellence Dr. Carrie Arnold and Dr. Rick Csiernik “I think the focal point of learning and transformative change is relationship, the power of conversation, and learning to turn toward one another to build community. In courses on death and loss, a surprising aspect for our students is the transformation that occurs as a result of their classroom interactions and sense of connection with fellow classmates with whom they share similar loss experiences. Many students have said that they live more fully and intentionally, have healthier relationships, and develop meaningful career paths. Through my courses, I hope students learn to be open, curious, and more accepting of themselves and others.” Dr. Carrie Arnold, Thanatology Program

“My hope is that in my class, students will find a space where they know they don’t have to be perfect, even though they want to be; where they can experiment, attempt, and make mistakes in a supported environment. I want them to risk, to be genuine, and to learn to practice and to value themselves as much as they value their clients, but ultimately I want them to leave King’s being knowers.” Dr. Rick Csiernik, School of Social Work

Specialization in Catholic Studies for Teachers, Major in French

What I like about King’s: King’s is an extremely supportive learning environment with small class sizes that allow for a close and cohesive team approach both inside and outside of the classroom. The incredible faculty at King’s inspires me to be enthusiastic about learning as I journey to become a Catholic educator. I am proud to be part of the King’s community where I feel at home. Getting connected: King’s is special because the many clubs and volunteer initiatives help to nourish the solidarity of our community. Being active on campus has helped me to transform my university experience and truly feel part of the King’s family through opportunities such as the Student Council, Bridging Assistant, and the KAMP Mentorship Program. Participating in the King’s Leadership Association, the French Conversation Club and the King’s Children Association has allowed me to work with talented and unique individuals and keeps me closely connected to other King’s students, faculty and the larger London community.

What I like about King’s: I love the small, tight-knit feeling at King’s. This sense of community makes you feel welcomed the minute you step onto campus. The faculty and staff are committed to helping students succeed and achieve the most from their university experience. King’s allows you to grow as an academic, and an individual. Getting connected: As an off-campus student, becoming involved in extracurricular activities allowed for me to make new friends. Joining the King’s University College Students’ Council gave me the chance to connect with a variety of students across campus and learn new skills as a student leader. I was able to work to make a difference in the King’s community and better the experience for my fellow students. I have been able to grow as an individual and will carry these experiences with me as I move forward into a career. The experiences of being a student leader made my time in university unforgettable.

(OUAC code EKF)

This is the only interdisciplinary program of its kind in Canada. It combines a unique focus on identifying often overlooked child competencies, a constructive questioning of existing understandings of childhood, and an exploration of the implications of the changing status of children and childhood in Canada and internationally. We take a critical view of the social institutions around childhood – the home, the school, the legal system, the educational system, etc. Students will engage with a variety of courses which offer opportunities to deepen their knowledge in the area and will gain skills in critical thinking and social and historical analysis as well as understanding how childhood is experienced by children. Issues around children’s rights and children’s agency are a prominent feature of our courses.

King’s and Fanshawe College have developed a unique pathway earning the two year diploma and the three year degree in Economics (major in Finance) within a four year period. These graduates, in addition to earning a degree from Western and a diploma from Fanshawe College, will also possess a number of certifications (i.e., Certified Financial Planner and Mutual Funds Licensing) as well as be prepared to write the exams for the Canadian Securities Course and Life Licensing Qualification Program which will further enhance their career opportunities.

Mackenzie Mountford program: Honors Specialization in Childhood and Social Institutions, King’s Scholar

What I like about King’s: It’s difficult to articulate how proud I am to be a King’s student. I feel lucky to be a part of such an accepting community, where both professors and students are respectful of, and open to, diverse identities and views. The students I have come to know at King’s are passionate, supportive, and kind. My professors are equally impactful, as they are patient, dedicated, and always willing to discuss class material with me to help better my understanding. Getting connected: The unique, rights-based perspective on childhood furthered by the CSI program has encouraged me to adopt a more respectful, participation-focused approach to working with young people. Recently, I had the opportunity to further develop my attitudes on childhood when I travelled to Sweden as a part of one of my courses. Being exposed to international views on a topic I’m so passionate about contributed to both my personal and professional growth. I hope to attend law school to become a child advocate lawyer after completing my undergraduate degree, and the certificate in Childhood and the Justice System offered by the CSI program has helped reinforce my desire to pursue this path, and given me a head start learning about this field. 10

KING’S UNIVERSITY


Social Justice & Peace Studies (SJPS) The SJPS program is one of the only programs in Canada that combines the study and work of both justice and peace. This program critically examines the root causes of social injustice and violence in society, in our community and in the world. And it innovatively explores alternatives to injustice and violence by focusing on how to build peace and justice. It does this through rigorous academic training, combined with community based learning and numerous optional experiential learning opportunities in the global community. SJPS is the hub at King’s University for engaged, social innovation and active learning in the creation of a more just and peaceful community and world.

What I like about King’s: I love King’s for its tight-knit community of students, professors and staff. Though we have access to all the resources Western has to offer, we also have more opportunities to engage and connect on our affiliate campus. Many professors at King’s go out of their way to remember their student’s names, get to know them and really do care about our success, which can truly give you the upper-hand during and after undergrad if you take advantage of it! Getting connected: I have been involved with the orientation program since my second year. This has allowed me to connect with many outstanding people from all over campus, while working to improve campus life for first year students. Through my program I have also had the opportunity to engage in experiential learning as I traveled to the Dominican Republic this past Reading Week, with studies focused on Globalization and Citizenship. Through this experience I was able to make so many great relationships with professors, other students, community members and international organizations. I also get connected with other like-minded students through the clubs on campus. Since first year, I have been involved with the French Conversation Club, Jack.org and the Social Justice and Peace Club.

Studies and French CURRENT CAREER organization: London Environmental Network title: Executive Director I work at the London Environmental Network, which is an environmental non-profit that works to build strong, resilient organizations so they can be more effective at creating positive environmental change over the long term. Having a liberal arts degree taught me all the soft skills I needed to become a leader in the environmental sector in London. Having only taken one environmental science course, my academic education does not lie in the ecological or scientific side of the environment, but I did learn how to mobilize people and execute plans on a bare-bones budget. These skills are incredibly important to have in the non-profit and environmental sector as the environmental sector does not have a lot of financial resources. VIEWBOOK 2019

What I like about King’s: I love that King’s is a small community. It truly has become my home over the past three years. At King’s, I know that I’m valued for who I am and for who I am becoming. This close-knit community has given me the opportunity to easily build meaningful relationships with other students and faculty. My professors in both the Disabilities Studies program as well as Catholic Studies are genuinely concerned with our academic progress, but also make time for us when we need their guidance the most. This campus is a place where I can always find someone I know, no matter where I am. The friends I have made at King’s are friends that I picture having for the rest of my life. Getting connected: Many of my connections at King’s have come about because of the small campus and class sizes make building relationships even easier. I’ve also been lucky enough to stay connected through the experiential learning classes in my Catholic Studies program. I got to experience 10 unforgettable days in Rome with so many of my closest friends and my amazing professors. Over the course of the trip, I quickly realized the depth of information I’ve gained through my years in university. Not only that, but it was an experience that showed me just how applicable my degree is to the world we live in today. That experiential learning trip has been the most influential experience of my years at King’s so far. 12

KING’S UNIVERSITY

What I like about King’s: What I like about King’s is the close-knit atmosphere on campus. All of the classes are much smaller than other campuses, allowing you to be more engaged and enhance your learning. In addition to the small class sizes, like that all of the professors are very approachable and very willing to help you achieve your academic goals if you put in the work and effort. Getting connected: A big reason why I chose to come to King’s was because of the great varsity sports programs at Western. I stay connected being a member of the men’s varsity hockey team. With that I also had the chance to help start SAMHI (Student Athlete Mental Health Initiative) with some of my fellow teammates and student-athletes. Overall, I’m looking forward to a successful second year.

What I like about King’s: I completed my BSW at King’s (class of 2017) and chose to return for the 1-year MSW program during the 2017-18 academic year. There are many reasons to choose social work at King’s, and mine are simple: where else can you enjoy a quality education with small class sizes and learning with experienced professors while also getting the benefits of a larger post-secondary institution?” In addition, the tight-knit community at King’s is contagious! I welcome you to connect or come for a visit to learn the difference, first-hand. Getting connected: The profession (social work) is about connection with others and the school of social work at King’s is not short on opportunities to develop strong connections and collaborative working relationships. It’s a privilege to represent social work students and King’s as the Student Director on the Ontario Association of Social Workers (OASW) Provincial Board. Professors and school administration have been such an amazing support and combined with my experiences, they provided opportunities that were unique to my professional learning needs and a fit for my next chapter in the social work profession.

I have become much more self-reliant through living on my own and developing self-study skills through my university. I have become more confident talking to new people and making new friends, some of whom I am sure I will stay in contact with for many years. Being in a new culture and new country gave me greater understanding for others yet helped me to appreciate all of my comforts back home. I recommend the program to those looking for a university experience of a lifetime. ”

I got to meet new people who I’ll be friends with forever, study beside the ocean, and hang out with the kangaroos. The University of Notre Dame is amazing, and you get the best of both worlds as you live beside the big city of Perth but campus is in the cute historical town of Freo!”

Colin MacDonald Assistant General Manager of the London Knights King’s BMOS program 2013-2015 HBA ‘17 “I cannot say enough about the first two years of my undergraduate degree that I spent at King’s. I really enjoyed the smaller class sizes that encouraged participation, getting to know your professors, and the learning environment that was created. It helped to prepare me for going to the Ivey Business School as King’s taught me how to participate in class and back up the answers I provided with facts and reason. The experience I had further helped me into my career and my role as the Assistant General Manager of the London Knights Hockey Club where I am expected to come into work with new ideas on how to make our program better.” VIEWBOOK 2019

Julia Chiasson program: Honors Double Major Psychology & Criminology

What I like about King’s: It provides me with an enriched learning environment, and community. Engaging in small class sizes, student leadership opportunities and on-campus employment has allowed me to learn and grow in all areas of life. Being a part of a small campus has allowed me to thrive alongside my peers and professors and has provided me with the most incredible university experience. Getting connected: It has been my honor to be a part of the Orientation Soph team for 3 consecutive years and the King’s University College Students’ Council where I am currently the Associate Vice President of Student Events. Additionally, I am very thankful to have participated in the King’s Work Study program where I have been able to continue to work at Enrolment Services throughout my time at King’s.

What I like about King’s: The thing I like most about King’s would be the amazing professors. Throughout my time here, I have been able to form professional relationships with my professors that have benefited me in many ways. The small campus size made integration and education much more easily accessible to me. Getting connected: My greatest achievement is being able to work closely with incoming students at Summer Academic Orientation (SAO). I thoroughly enjoy interacting with our incoming students and taking part in the joy and excitement that they are feeling about starting this new adventure here at King’s. It’s never a dull moment here at King’s, but, if I had to choose just one great experience I’ve had here, it would be meeting the amazing people that study and work here. I have been able to form life-long friendships that have impacted my life in such a positive way. VIEWBOOK 2019

My King’s Experience Students’ Council, clubs and athletics Educating the whole person involves student engagement outside of the classroom. King’s strives to create a formative experience for all its students. Leadership, teamwork, volunteerism, and a commitment to service are transferrable skills to life beyond King’s. KUCSC The King’s University College Student Council (KUCSC) is a vibrant and active student leadership group which serves to enhance the King’s Undergraduate Experience. The KUCSC is comprised of an elected Executive, Representatives and appointed Commissioners who are dedicated to improving the student experience by planning events, advocating for students, connecting students to resources and services, and by providing many opportunities for leadership development. With a wide variety of academic, cultural, social and philanthropic clubs, the KUCSC funded club system is a great way to meet new people that share similar interests through club activities and trips. The KUCSC organizes many events, awareness weeks and intramural sports teams throughout the year. The King’s Connection is a successful retail store, ticket booth and information centre which is operated by the Students Council and is located on the main floor of the Student Life Centre. All proceeds from the store go directly back into student programming. The KUCSC also funds and supports student publications such as the Regis Magazine and Kings Academic Research Journal.

Hadia Fiaz KUCSC President 2018-2019 Program: Honors Specialization in Political Science Minor in Philosophy What I like about King’s: Infinite potential. That is what I like best about King’s. From the first year that you are on this campus till the day you get handed your degree you have an abundance of opportunities, experiences, professors and friends that will help make your years at King’s some of the best years of your life. It’s no secret that university is challenging, but the welcoming King’s community sets you up for success. The mentorship and support I have received from my professors has helped me foster a mindset of infinite potentiality—I have access to everything that I would need to accomplish whatever I want. This potential to do whatever you would like is an incomparable advantage that comes along with Kings’ small campus charm. Getting connected: I stay connected through networks. Anytime you enroll in a class, or join a club or team you are being exposed to a new network of people. If you’re genuine in your approach to building relationships you begin to develop your own unique networks of faculty, alumni, staff and peers that can help make a meaningful impact on your life. To get connected you need to put yourself out there, be yourself and embrace the opportunities that come your way. Being a part of the students’ council has been an extraordinary experience that has given me opportunities I otherwise wouldn’t have access to. I know everyone says this, but it is true, if you want to get connected, then you need to get involved. If anybody would like to connect, please feel free to email me at any time and I’d be happy to help in any way that I can. (president@kucsc.ca) 32

Jessica James program: Double Major in Sociology and Criminology

What I like about King’s: The small class give me a greater opportunity to meet one-on-one with professors. Their office hours are another important aspect—I have utilized professor’s office hours to discuss course concepts, go over equations I was unsure about, and look over my graded assignments. In doing this my professors were able to clarify things for me individually. Getting connected: While studying at King’s I have had wonderful volunteering opportunities. Through KUCSC, I was able to be a part of both King’s Kids Club, as well as the Best Buddies Club. Some of my most memorable and valuable moments I’ve had while studying at King’s have been through tour guiding. Having the amazing opportunity to meet and get to know prospective students and their families and to play a small part in helping them make their decision of which school they choose to go to is extremely rewarding. Choosing your post-secondary school is such a momentous occasion, and I feel unbelievably lucky to be able to be a part of their journey.

What I like about King’s: The small campus community of King’s appeals to Smiley: “I love that King’s is very welcoming and accepting. It feels like a home away from home.” Getting connected: My advice is to get involved—whether it is an athletic team, club or group. DO IT! King’s is a great place to be, and you can learn more than you anticipate if you put yourself out there.” Mitch says that spending time at the library or in the Student Life Centre allows him to stay connected with friends, and hear about what is happening on campus.

A Place of Vitality and Promise

When you are an off-campus student, you need a place to unwind, connect with friends and study while you are at King’s. The Darryl J. King Student Life Centre is the heart of campus. It is the living room on campus where students can gather and hang out: playing pool in the games room, doing yoga in the meditation room, or working out in the athletic facilities. The 490 seat theatre offers guest speakers and academic discussion hours and you can brand yourself in awesome King’s swag from The King’s Connection.

Fuel your Spirit

“We desire to address and support the whole person. Our role includes bringing people together in prayer and is about so much more. It is about helping people to see the importance of the Spirit in their lives and that our vision as students, staff and faculty should always be looking outward to transformation in the community. We do this within the Catholic tradition, which by its very nature, is inclusive and seeks to build bridges with members of the Church, members of other Christian churches, other people of faith and those who are seeking the good.” Father Michael Bechard, D.Min Chaplain and King’s alumnus ’91 36

KING’S UNIVERSITY


As King’s continues to grow, Campus Ministry is one of the knots that keep us connected to our mission, our history, our community and to one another.

Through a wide variety of on-campus and outreach programs and services, Campus Ministry has created places for the community to explore its faith. Programming like the Veritas Lecture Series, monthly outreach to The Hospitality Centre and the Pine Channel Experience are all places for students and other community members to explore, find hope, grow and to be nourished. “We need to keep challenging ourselves to put our studies and our prayer into concrete service. It’s about faith in action” says Father Michael Bechard, Chaplain.
