Hidden in the Everyday: Financial Abuse as a Form of Intimate Partner Violence

Through a growing partnership between CESI, the Woman Abuse Council of Toronto (WomanACT) and psychology professor Dr. Paula Barata, University of Guelph students have been taking part in the full process of research impact, from knowledge creation to implementation. Hidden in the Everyday is a report that draws on qualitative data gathered through surveys and focus groups with service providers and in-depth interviews with survivors. The report examines the experiences and impacts of financial abuse as well as the challenges in confronting it and the opportunities to prevent and address it.

Black Soldiers from Guelph in the Great War

A community-engaged teaching and learning collaboration between the Guelph Black Heritage Society, U of G College of Arts, and CESI has used film to explore the lives of Black residents of Guelph who served in World War I. Working together with the Guelph Black Heritage Society, students in Dr. Jade Ferguson's English 2130: Literature and Social Change class created the short film Black Soldiers from Guelph in the Great War. This video shares the story of the No. 2 Construction Battalion, the only all-Black unit in Canadian military history, and provides insight into the lives and motivations of Black veterans who were either born or resided in Guelph. The students tell the story of Black Canadians in the early 20th century, illustrating that they served their country by fighting two wars - the Great war, and a war at home to make a more just society.

System Analysis and Design in Applications [CIS*3750]

Throughout the semester, students worked with a community partner to develop a website, database, mobile app, or other platform to meet the needs of the partner organization. The course was intensive in terms of time and involvement expected within the semester.

Throughout this course, students worked with a community partner to analyze and approach broad social issues from a multidisciplinary perspective. A unique aspect of the course was that there were no clear rubrics or mark breakdowns established. Students were informed about bare minimum requirements, but were encouraged to think beyond how to perform to meet expectations, and engaged in conversations with the instructors regarding appropriate learning goals and outcomes based on their discipline and year-level.

Research Shop Digital Stories

The impacts and experiences of community engaged research and community-university partnerships can be challenging to share via traditional research and knowledge dissemination methods.
