Research Matters

Cape Breton University researchers are addressing important issues in scholarly discourses and debate, as well as problems that concern the general public. The research undertaken at CBU is making a difference—to academics, students and the community. The projects CBU researchers participate in are original, world-class and respected among other scholars and the public.

March is Research Month at CBU! Check out the schedule here.
