Connecting with the community
CBU knows the importance of collaborating with the community. Some of our most vigorous working partnerships are formed locally.Our research benefits greatly from strong, productive links between the university and the community. These partnerships allow our researchers to create knowledge by tapping into resources that can only be accessed through strong, trusted bonds with community members and groups.
Visit Cape Breton University’s Cooperative Study Club and you’ll find a collaborative place for creative discussion, knowledge building and meeting new people.
We’re always working on new programming including:
• experiential and interactive learning
• free school and extension courses
• community-driven research
• reference services
• communal work hubs
• civic engagement
Highlighting research relevance
Funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) and Cape Breton University, the Cooperative Study Club also benefits our researchers by giving them the chance to share their work in the community with a greater sense of pragmatism and immediacy.
Past events have included:
• art-making cafes
• repair cafes
• Children’s University in the Community
• National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)
• Cape Breton Naturalists’ Society meet-ups
