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?
