The Office of Research Services (ORS) supports research, scholarly and creative activity at all stages of a project—planning, development, implementation and follow-through. As well as providing information on funding opportunities, we host workshops, ensure ethical standards are met, provide print and digital resources for managing projects and answer any questions you have about research at MacEwan. We support the work of Research Council, the Grant Adjudication Committee and a number of subcommittees.
Scholarship in the heart of the city
Research activities at MacEwan University are guided by the Strategic Plan for Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity, 2017–2020 and led by the Research Council, a standing committee of Academic Governance Council. The Research Council advises the University community on research policy, supports faculty research and contributes to a flourishing research environment that enriches teaching and learning.
SSHRC Institutional Grant
SSHRC Institutional Grants (SIG) help eligible Canadian post secondary institutions fund, through their own merit review processes, small-scale research and research-related activities by their faculty and students in the social sciences and humanities.
