This is the second in a proposed series of studies, which looks at risk and resiliency as it exists within a Canadian (undergraduate) university cohort. In the first study, with samples drawn from two distinct academic programs (Arts and Sciences and Education), considerable differences were found when the results from a questionnaire were juxtaposed and analysed. In brief, in the previous study, risk and resiliency characteristics, as they exist within a sampled post secondary undergraduate population, were measurably more prevalent in Education students when compared to their Arts and Sciences counterparts (Paolucci & Richardson, 2009). Thus, in discovering a statistically significant representation of post secondary Education students who identified themselves as being children and young adolescents who were exposed to substantial risk in their early lives, but now see themselves as resilient adults, this study seeks to further describe the previous results by expanding the sample size quite considerably within the identified Education population.
