Featured CBRC Member Project
CBR Course at Vancouver Island University

Vancouver Island University Professors Sylvie Lafreniere (Sociology), Elilzabeth McClin (Criminology) and Robert Willis (Management) offer an innovative Community Based Applied Interdisciplinary Research course in which students develop and utilize their research skills by investigating real world problems identified by local organizations as partner clients, which have so far included the Nanaimo Extreme Weather Shelter, the Nanaimo Brain Injury Society, and the Domestic Violence Court of Nanaimo. Over the course of 8 months, the students participate in a CBR boot camp, meet with the local organizations, develop questions and approaches, go through ethical review, conduct research, analyze findings and then make presentations to the partners (check out the video here).
