The Community Engaged Scholarship Institute (CESI) brings together community and campus skills and resources in order to advance community-identified research goals. We work in collaboration, we honour diverse forms of knowledge, and we leverage university resources for community benefit.

A suite of programs works to carry forward our mandate within and beyond the College of Social and Applied Human Sciences, and in our local communities of Guelph and Wellington County. We also support global community engagement initiatives that align with our principles and practices.
