Student Experience

Ashely Bildfell

“At MJW, I gained an in-depth understanding of the impact of multi-level systems on children and families and the benefits of multi-level interventions.

This invaluable learning experience was made possible by the opportunities I had to work collaboratively with community partners united by the goal of helping children and families.”

Melissa Read

"Working as a graduate student and research assistant within the Mary J. Wright Research and Education Centre (MJW) has given me multiple opportunities to gain research and practical experience. The collaboration between MJW and Merrymount has enabled me to connect with people in the community and conduct real-world, applied research.

Through this, I have developed an understanding of how research and practice are continually informing each other, and how they can work together in order to address practical problems and improve outcomes for those in need."
