Located on the fifth floor of the J.W. McConnell Building (LB Building), the Francis Friedman Resource Centre (FRC) serves the needs of the graduate students in the Department of Education. One of the goals of the FRC is to foster a community of life-long learning and collaboration across programs and curricula.
The FRC 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, FRC 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 graduate students in the Department of Education volunteer at FRC. FRC volunteers try their best to keep the place open, fully functional and as beneficial as possible to the graduate students of the Department of Education.
Our volunteers are graduate students from all five programs of the Department of Education: Applied Linguistics; Child Studies; Educational Studies; Educational Technology and PhD Program.
