“OPIRG plays a very valuable role on the McMaster campus by providing opportunities for students to commit themselves as engaged citizens and to develop their leadership, team-building, planning and program implementation skills around issues of human rights, social justice and environmental responsibility. OPIRG not only mobilizes energies in this way but also serves to heighten awareness on campus about a wide range of issues of global and local concern. I have great admiration for the contribution that OPIRG makes to developing active citizens through its many projects.”
