I really recommend VIPIRG because firstly, not only are the individuals who work there very passionate about their jobs, they also have great community initiatives and diverse events which bring students together.

I think what VIPIRG does is great and helpful for students. The fact that it's done for non profit is amazing

Innovation starts with young and capable minds! Its inspiring that VIPIRG continues to support and help the community at uvic by providing many different resources. Sometimes it feels like you are on your own when at university but it's comforting to know that there are organizations to help and support in shaping our academic career as well as our minds!

"All advocates and all levels of government need sound information based on facts obtained from RESEARCH to form successful policies.

Parent groups are recommending student advocates to all 60 school district boards throughout BC and the VIPIRG would provide invaluable support to them.

"I worked for and later was on the board of VIPIRG in the late 80s and early 90s. It was an invaluable part of my education. It also contributed strongly to UVic through its resources and advocacy. At a time when this concept was new and radical, we started and ran a recycling program on campus, educated everyone on what that was, and created a classroom kit so teachers could teach kids about recycling. We also convinced the bookstore to sell recycled paper, the cafeteria to use real cups, etc., and the university to improve facilities for those who biked to school and to create carpooling parking spots. And much more, including critical interfaces between students and the broader community."
