“Élyse submitted a stellar paper based on her final assignment for my class, Introduction to Social Welfare Policy Analysis (SWRK 1310), and I encouraged her to submit to the student competition of the Canadian Social Work Review,” says Kendra Nixon, director of RESOLVE and associate professor, Faculty of Social Work.
