What is Knowledge Mobilization?

CESI Knowledge Mobilization Definition

Knowledge Mobilization (KMb) can be defined in many ways. At CESI, we believe that KMb is an integral element of critical community-engaged scholarship, and see knowledge-sharing, dialogue, and recognition of multiple forms and locations of knowledge as crucial parts of our collaborative practice. KMb is integrated into our community-engaged practice including the CETL program, the Guelph Lab, and the Research Shop, as well as being a distinct program at CESI.

Key Terms and Values

Our key values are deeply important to how and why we do the work we do. These values are embeded across all CESI's programs and are rooted in our strategic direction. 

Our work will be transformational rather than transactional. Our collaborative work seeks to create positive social change and work toward social justice.

We believe that scholarship is a public service. All our research outputs freely available to the public.
