Welcome to the web pages for the Office of Research and Graduate Studies (ORGS) at Cape Breton University.  The ORGS is responsible for facilitating and administering faculty and student research and is the administrative home for graduate studies.  Supports are provided through the research officer, research advancement officer and the industry liaison officer.  The menu on the left provides links to valuable information for researchers, students and external sponsors and partners.

Although CBU is a small comprehensive university, we have a tremendous variety of research activity.  During the 2010-11, CBU faculty conducted more than $3 million in externally funded research.  The first edition of our annual Research Matters publication was published in 2012 and our student research magazine is published annually in the fall.

As Dean, I am the administrative head of the ORGS.  Using my experience as a past Canada Research Chair, former union leader, faculty member, and active researcher, I have taken the opportunity to further CBU’s participation in national conferences and associations, to develop transparent policies and procedures, and to support my team as they endeavor to provide the best service possible.


I trust you will find the information on these pages useful.


Dr. Dale Keefe, Dean of Research & Graduate Studies
