Free Panel Discussion Online: Mutual Benefits of Non-Profits Partnering with University Researchers

The City of Regina and University of Regina are partnerhing to provide a series of workshops and panel discussions to support the non-profit sector. 

The first session in this series occurs on Monday, Sept. 28th and will discuss the mutual benefits of non-profits partnering with University researchers. 

Impact through Collaboration: How Evidence-Based Research and Evaluation Can Better Support the Non-Profit Sector is a panel discussion will bring together non-profit administrators and community-based researchers to discuss community-campus collaborations and the benefits of working together to address complex issues in our community.

The moderated panel discussion will include an analysis of collaborations from project planning and funding through to evaluation.

The audience will learn about the ways in which these collaborations can strengthen funding applications as well as the benefit of community-based research in addressing complex social issues in our community to better support the important work that non-profit agencies do.

Panelist will include:

  • Tracy Sanden (Food Regina) will share her experience working on a number of community-based research projects with University Partners, including a GIS mapping project that will create a visual tool to help community partners advocate for improved food resources within neighbourhoods of high food bank usage.

  • Ann Perry (Circle Project) and Laurie Clune (UR, Nursing), will speak to the work they are doing together to research the City of Regina’s hidden homeless population, a population that is not counted in homelessness surveys and has evaded the radar of policy makers, program developers and funders.

  • Andrea Kotlar Livingston (FASD Network of Saskatchewan) and Michelle Stewart (UR, Faculty of Arts), will speak about work they are doing together on the Integrated Justice Program. This project is a response to TRC Call to Action #34 and provides direct supports for Indigenous individuals with complex cognitive disabilities in Court.

  • Jacq Brasseur (UR Pride) and Claire Carter (UR, Women & Gender Studies), will talk about how they have joined forces to evaluating the mental health realities for 2SLGBTQIAP+ People in Regina.
