UBC is investing over $500,000 to support partnerships that will benefit communities and advance collaborative research, teaching and learning across the province.

Community Engagement and the Office of the Vice-President, Research and Innovation, are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2021-22 Community-University Engagement Support Fund (CUES).

Paid directly to community partners, CUES funding reduces financial barriers and prioritizes reciprocal, inclusive engagement so all communities — especially those that have been and continue to be underserved, marginalized, or excluded — can benefit.

“The partnerships supported by CUES are an important component of Strategy 9 (Knowledge Exchange) to support research excellence in UBC’s strategic plan, and can lead to effective new ways of tackling social, health and environmental challenges locally and beyond,” says Dr. Matthew Evenden, Associate Vice-President, Research and Innovation.
