A Student Spotlight

Karen Hodson - RAC Student


I am the Applied Research Administrator at the Justice Institute of BC (JIBC) which includes providing administrative support for our REB.  I have been in this role for ten years, but I just joined CARA this April. The past three years I attended the REB West conferences (organized by UBC & SFU) and learned a tremendous amount, but with COVID-19 this year was cancelled. However, with support from my team, I was able to join CARA and continue to expand my research knowledge by enrolling in the Research Administration Certificate program and I am nearly complete my first course.  My goal is to complete the RAC program, as well as continue to expand my research knowledge and professional network through CARA.
