The CTPCLP holds its symposium annually to provide a platform for its fellows to present and share the knowledge and experiences they have gained from their social research and/or community development projects. At the same time, the symposium hopes to reach out to and inspire more NUS students to take on the responsibility to address social issues in Singapore. The CTPCLP fellows, some of whom are also USP students, will discuss the field research projects they have undertaken with various social service organisations. Thereafter, Guest-of-Honour Minister for Culture, Community and Youth, Ms Grace Fu, will engage with participants in a dialogue. We urge USP students to join in this conversation with her.CTPCLP is based in and supported by USP.
This event is to provide a platform for USP student mentees and USP alumni mentors under the USP Mentoring Programme to get to know each other, as well as to facilitate a better match between them. The alumni mentors will guide the student mentees to discover their career aspirations which are aligned with the mentees' life purpose, passion and competencies.
Last December, USP students visited Perak, Malaysia to conduct ethnographic field research on three ethnic Chinese fishing village communities. While studies have been conducted to document the demographic changes in such villages, documentation of the experiences of the villagers remains scarce. The ‘Forgotten Communities’ participants have completed research reports on the three villages and will present their key findings to the USP community.
