Advancing Public Engagement in Canada

Public engagement is becoming a commonly understood and appreciated concept at Canadian universities, with institutions and their partners in the public experiencing the benefits and opportunities of publicly engaged research and teaching & learning.

What can we do to support this growth across Canada? Are there gaps or unfulfilled needs related to public engagement at the national-level? What role do partnerships and collaborations with other institutions through networks play? What are the next steps for university-community public engagement in this country?

Join us for a forward-looking panel discussion, including:

  • Matthew Johnson, Associate Dean, Engaged Scholarship & Executive Director of the Howard R. Swearer Centre for Public Service, Brown University
  • Michelle Nilson, Associate Professor of Educational Leadership at Simon Fraser University and Academic Co-lead, Community-Campus Engage Canada
  • David Phipps, Executive Director, Research & Innovation Services at York University and Director, Research Impact Canada
