One of the hallmarks of the Centre is the Researcher-in-Residence Program. This program links Brandon University researchers with teams of community-based research practitioners from organizations, schools, school divisions, or community groups. The purpose of the program is to help develop the applied research capacity of community-based research practitioners. University researchers act as mentors to the research practitioners.
We welcome opportunities to provide innovative, community-engaged research services that link our faculty with the needs of communities. We work with rural, northern and remote schools, school divisions, government agencies and community groups in all aspects of the research process: from initial research to preparation of a final report. Using the Researcher-in-Residence Program – a community-university team approach – the Centre is committed to providing research services including:
- applied and field research activities,
- research training workshops,
- proposal development, and
- facilitation and project management.
