The Office of Research and Graduate studies (ORGS) facilitates and administers student and faculty research. ORGS provides valuable information and services to researchers applying for funding, and is the centre of research promotion at Cape Breton University. CBU is committed to creating a culture that enables and promotes research and critical thinking, including the pursuits of commercialization. With over four million dollars in external research funding, our students and researchers are always working on new and innovative research. CBU’s robust research culture is built upon a strong network of community, industry and public partnerships.
