On August 29, 2018, CFICE partners and co-leads, Jim Blake, Stephen Hill, and research assistant Emily Amon, presented the webinar Bringing the University to Rural Ontario: Brokering Campus & Community Engagement in Haliburton.

This webinar, organized by The Rural Policy Learning Commons in partnership with CFICE, U-Links, and Trent University, explored the 30-year history of a relationship between Trent University and the rural community of Haliburton, Ontario in community development and policy change. An overview of the role of U-Links Community-Based Research Centre, a community-based organization that brokers the relationship between the community and the university was provided by Jim Blake along with the perspective of faculty member Stephen Hill, whose students have been engaged for many years in the community. Masters student Emily Amon also presented on her experiences participating in numerous community-based research projects, as well as on her work researching the impact of CCE on the community.
