exercise.
Benefits of graduate education to the U of R and to Regina
Graduate students are the lifeblood of university-level research in most disciplines;
without talented graduate students, many research programmes simply cannot be carried
out at full capacity. The benefits of graduate education to the University are both direct
and indirect. Graduate enrollments are increasing as undergraduate enrollments decline;
thus, tuition revenues from graduate students are offsetting losses from reduced student
enrollments at the undergraduate level. With the development of new research
infrastructure at the University, such as the CFI-funded RICE and SPIT labs, as well as
the proposed Child and Behaviour Laboratory, our programme has an unprecedented
opportunity to recruit and train students and research associates at all levels.
Given the highly-competitive nature of admission to psychology graduate programmes in
Canada, graduate students from outside of Regina are more easily recruited than
undergraduates. The training these students receive at other institutions brings fresh
perspectives on research and teaching at the U of R, and the success of these students
enhances the University's provincial, national, and even international reputation. The
