The Labour Studies Program
The Labour Studies Program at Simon Fraser University is committed to the study and understanding of labour, working people, and their organizations from a comprehensive social, cultural, historical, political and economic perspective. The Program aims to provide a range of taught courses and programs (credit and non-credit), to Simon Fraser University students and provincial labour organizations, and create mutually supportive and beneficial links between academic and labour communities.
The Morgan Centre for Labour Research
The Morgan Centre administers the research side of the Labour Studies Program. It is dedicated to encouraging research on labour-related issues, soliciting funds, overseeing the progress of these projects, and disseminating their results on completion. The Centre offers the possibility of collaborative research ventures, open to SFU students and members of provincial labour organizations, foundations, individuals, and NGOs that are concerned about the interests of working people.
