The Awareness and Opinions of the UW Population in Regard to the University Community Access and Engagement Initiatives

Community Engagement Research

By Nathan Hall

Many universities have increased support for partnership development and community-relevant forms of scholarship. Building partnerships between universities and marginalized inner-city populations helps generate ongoing opportunities for public scholarship and teaching social justice. In 2009, the University of Winnipeg (UW) released a position paper focused on engaging community. Community-engagement efforts at the UW need to be continually assessed through various methods to ensure that community engagement efforts are maintained and that policy is fully implemented. The purpose of this study is to examine current knowledge and perceptions regarding the UW’s community-learning initiatives.
