CESI by the Numbers: Key Metrics 2019-2020

This summary highlights key impacts reported by the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute (CESI) from May 2019 - April 2020. This document is a summary of a larger, internal report on CESI's activities and impacts; the numbers presented were identified as being of particular interest by the College of Social and Applied Human Sciences. The metrics are separated into three categories: capacity development, partnerships, and research projects.

The capacity development category includes numbers associated with activities that built capacity for community engaged scholarship across campus through all of CESI's program areas. Students, courses, and instructors were supported via CESI's direct participation in community engaged courses, on PhD committees, and by providing access to space at 10C for classes and other activities. Throughout 2019 and 2020, CESI employed students in a variety of positions, including doing research, knowledge mobilization, communications, graphic design, and other project-specific work.

The partnership category includes numbers associated with CESI's overall partnerships, relationships, and networks. CESI holds partnerships with a number of community organizations, campus units, municipalities, and other groups, and participates on a range of committees and networks locally, nationally, and internationally. CESI also serves as a project and relationship broker, making connections between partners for projects that do not fit firmly within the CESI mandate, and acts as the main point of contact between U of G and 10C.

The research projects category includes numbers associated with CESI's total completed and ongoing partnered research projects, as well as community- and Tri-Council-funded projects. CESI is engaged in a range of collaborative research projects that vary in length, depth, and number of partners. Some are funded by Tri-Council agencies such as SSHRC, and others have received community grant funding; many are self-funded by community organizations.
