Three Faculty of Public Affairs faculty members and their research partners have won Partnership Engage Grants from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC). The grants “provide short-term and timely support for partnered research activities that will inform decision-making at a single partner organization from the public, private or not-for-profit sector.” They also enable the researchers and organizations to share knowledge and expertise on topics of mutual interest.

“We are proud to have our researchers working with community partners on these mutually beneficial projects,” said Brenda O’Neill, Dean of the Faculty of Public Affairs. “These projects demonstrate the influence academic researchers can have in tackling the most important issues in society today. This is part of our core mission.”
