The Institute for Studies and Innovation in Community-University Engagement has been newly established as an inter-Faculty research centre between the Faculty of Human and Social Development and the Faculty of Social Sciences.

Using an innovative structure of community and university governance and collaboration, and building on the Office of Community Based Research’s (2007–2013) legacy, the Institute provides a space for the study and practice of engaged scholarship and interdisciplinary innovation.

Focused on engagement, the Institute will harvest new knowledge that contributes to solutions of community issues focused on sustainability, public policy development an improved theory and practice. Funded by both university and community partners, daily operation of the Institute will be delivered by staff in association with research associates, community partners and student interns.
