Attend Researching the City to hear from Education alumni and students

October 28, 2015

Learn how research done by Faculty of Education students enrolled in the Curriculum & Instruction: Equity Studies in Education Masters program as well as a few of our alumni, makes an impact on our city at Simon Fraser University's 2015 Community Summit, Researching the City.

Presented in partnership with SFU Vancouver and related faculties, departments, schools, programs and institutes, this storytelling event will showcase how research activities have a positive impact on cities – in public policy, economic development, social justice, health and well-being. We will look at how university research contributes to and learns from the city's communities.
