Solving problems, unearthing new knowledge, expressing ourselves creatively. At MacEwan University, faculty research seeks to answer local and global questions, enrich the social and cultural fabric of our city and provide students with hands-on experiences.
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.
