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 and a number of subcommittees.
COVID-19: Update for researchers
On July 1, 2021, most provincial and municipal public health guidelines were lifted as part of phase 3 of our provincial reopening. President Trimbee also sent out a memo that MacEwan University would begin to resume on-campus activities. As such, the Office of Research Services is ending the research restart approval process in place since last summer. As of July 8, 2021, people are no longer required to submit for research approval before conducting any research, scholarly or creative activity. However, please keep in mind:
If anyone has any questions on research, scholarly or creative activities, please send them to email@example.com.

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.
