Sheridan hosts Research Community Cafe
In partnership with the Region of Peel, Health Services and the Peel Children and Youth Initiative (PCYI), Sheridan’s Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and the Office for Undergraduate Research hosted an inaugural Community Research Café on April 17, 2015 at the Davis Campus.
The event provided a venue to showcase research while facilitating meaningful community connections for the over 90 participants in attendance. The forum brought together diverse external community partners and Sheridan staff, faculty (from the Faculties of Animation and Design, Applied Health and Community Studies and Humanities and Social Sciences) and students alike. The overarching goal of this event was to contribute to innovative service solutions that will positively impact children and youth in Peel community.
More than 25 poster presentations showcased projects. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive: participants found the program and insights to be both useful and applicable to their community agencies and educational institutions.
Based on the success of this event, the planning committee is working on organizing a full-day Community Cafe. Stay tuned for details!
