The FEC has launched a campaign to save the ACTIVISM COURSE (initiated in 2005 by Prof. Denis Rancourt, University of Ottawa).

This course was created by democratic student action and is being threatened by a nearsighted and reactionary university administration.

It is a unique and empowering course open to all.

A unique experiment in democratic education - no institutional evaluation - intrinsic motivation based, blending issues, theory, and action - a collective learning experience about the state of the world and how to change it ...

More detailed information about past offerings of the activism courses is posted at:

Please contact previous students or the FEC for more information:

--- Scheduling information ---

The activism courses (both first and second years) are planned to be given together, sharing the same speakers. The course PHY 1703 (Physique et environnement) is also planned to be given at the same time (also by Prof. Rancourt) and to share the same speakers.
