Research Connection — Volume 3

Passion and enthusiasm drive discovery

There are big ideas in Brandon. From our compact campus on the Canadian prairies to distant locations around the world to the far reaches of the cosmos, research at Brandon University ranges from microscopic to vast in scale.

While the scope is wide, a common thread is that big ideas can and do sprout from a small university. With our main campus located in Brandon, Manitoba, on Treaty 2 land, and a satellite campus in Winnipeg, on Treaty 1 territory, we view our status as a regional university as one of our greatest strengths. It drives us to be responsive to our local area, and to be resourceful.

Our energetic and committed faculty draw inspiration for their research and creative works from one another, from the communities we serve, and from other leading experts around the globe, building connections between Brandon and the world. These connections provide a significant foundation for us to build a vibrant and dynamic academic experience, producing ground-breaking research and first-class education for our students.
