Student Resource Centre

Located on the sixth floor of the Faubourg Building (FG Building), the Student Resource Centre serves the needs of the students in the Department of Education. One of the goals of the centre is to foster a community of life-long learning and collaboration across programs and curricula.

The centre was established in 1992 through a bequest of the late Francis Friedman, a professor in the Educational Technology Program in the Department of Education from 1969 to 1983. Professor Friedman was known for her interest in advancing students’ learning and the resource centre serves as her legacy.

Over the years, the centre has been more than a resource library for the graduate students of the Department of Education. It also serves as a place to discuss key issues and to learn from others and a place to relax.


We welcome all students in the Department of Education volunteer at centre. Centre volunteers try their best to keep the place open, fully functional and as beneficial as possible to the students of the Department of Education.
