How are you currently involved in community-campus partnerships for teaching, research or otherwise?

At the FITA program we provide internships for graduate students in counselling and social work to develop skills in an evidence based counselling environment to demonstrably improve student well being and academic performance for Carleton students. We are training counsellors for the future who then contribute across the national capital.
