Poster Exhibit: A Decade at CESI's Research Shop

Poster Exhibit: A Decade at CESI's Research Shop

The year 2019 marked the 10th anniversary of the Research Shop, one of the five programs through which the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute (CESI) fulfills its mandate to support and carry out community engaged scholarship. At the Research Shop, staff and graduate students work with local and regional organizations to design and carry out projects that address community research priorities.

To mark this milestone, CESI invited campus and community members to A Decade at CESI's Research Shop, a poster exhibit featuring 10 community engaged research projects conducted by the Research Shop over the past decade. These posters were displayed in the gallery at 10C in downtown Guelph throughout February 2020. Projects touched on a variety of topics and themes, from food security and the benefits of nature photography to women's participation in politics and youth engagement in cannabis awareness. Together, they demonstrated the value of community engaged research in informing our decisions and enhancing community capacity to address complex challenges.
