Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

LARC logoAbout Us

Founded by Drs. Janet McLaughlin and Margaret Schneider, the Laurier Autism Research Consortium (LARC) is a passionate group of professors, research assistants and students, working alongside various autism organizations, clinical experts, parent advocates, families and autistic individuals. Through conducting and sharing socially engaged research with policymakers and the public, our collective goal is to improve service access and quality of life for all autistic people and their families.
