Congress 2014 organizers looking for students’ help


Congress 2014 organizers are looking to fill more than 500 student volunteer and contractor positions as it gears up for the major academic conference at Brock University in May.

Last held at Brock in 1996, Congress – the largest symposium of its kind in Canada – will bring 8,000 or more delegates to the campus between May 24-30.

Organizers are looking for between 350-400 volunteers to help with “anything and everything,” said Curtis Gadula, Brock manager, off campus living and neighbourhood relations.

“We couldn’t have done this without the volunteers.”

Another 110 paid contractor positions are also available.

Hosted by the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences, Congress brings together academics, researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners to share findings, refine ideas, and build partnerships that will help shape Canada’s future.

Developed in partnership with a different host university each year, Congress programming is open to attendees, academics and non-academic audiences.

From theatre research, literature studies and education to history, sociology and communications, Congress represents a unique showcase of scholarly excellence, creativity and leadership.

Interested volunteers should contact Gadula prior to the deadline March 14 at 4 p.m.

Applications for positions can be filled online.
