Upcoming forum on Community Based Research

For those interested in community based research (CBR) the following may be of interest:

Conversations on Community Based Research: Engaging communities with college faculty and students May 8 & 9, 2008


The historically rich relationships between communities and colleges and institutes provide the context for mutually beneficial research through the practice of Community Based Research (CBR). Trends to engage faculty and students with the community through service learning and the desire for many community organizations to identify their own research needs and seek research partnerships with colleges converge to enrich this practice.

The symposium will be held in the new Health Sciences Building on the David Lam campus of Douglas College in Coquitlam BC. The event will be national in scope with presenters and participants from across Canada. It will serve as the context for the release of a recent national survey of CBR at Colleges and Institutes. The survey has been funded through the Health and Learning Knowledge Centre of the Canadian Council on Learning. The symposium will also serve as the official launch of the new Centre for Health and Community Partnerships on the David Lam campus.
