Now that the Call for Proposals is closed, here's a bit about 
the folks who took the time to make a submission:
 

Critical issues, for the common good.

In a time with so many complex challenges (reconciliation, housing affordability, drug deaths, poverty, climate change issues, and more), we need authentic community-academic partnerships for creating knowledge that address these and other issues. 

Preference will be given to joint proposals submitted by teams with academic and non-academic partners.
highlight the impacts that community-campus partnerships are making in society, communities, and lives of individuals.
showcase innovative models, experiences and best practices of community-campus programs. 
provide critical discussions about how partnerships and research initiatives contribute to, challenge, and create capacity for advancing the common good. 
bring together community members and post-secondary faculty, staff and/or students in the development and delivery of the program, event, or installation.  
...must include a proposal and abstract. The proposal should contain between 400 - 500 words and should provide a concise statement of the topic, issue, program or project to be discussed (the “what?”) and a summary of the major activities, findings, conclusions (the “so what?”) and implications for the future (the “now what?”).

The abstract should be no more than 50-words. Please note, this abstract may be used in the program, which will be made publicly available.

All proposals should be submitted no later than 23:59 PDT on Monday, December 5th.
Before submitting your proposal, make sure you have a high resolution (>750px wide), landscape (horizontal) photo of yourself. *The filename for the photo should include the name of the person in the photo.*
