The Research Office at The University of Winnipeg serves our faculty and our students in their exciting and strengthening commitments to a rich array of research projects in our five Faculties.  Current research at The University of Winnipeg is vitally related to our mission to engage with several communities.  We are a community of scholars and scientists who pursue basic research that inquires into fundamental questions in each of the academic disciplines.  At the same time, we work in an institution vitally engaged in applied research that engages with and transforms the local, national, and international communities that we live among.  These commitments and goals are neither incompatible nor mutually exclusive, any more than our research activities are unrelated to our teaching.  On the contrary: excellent basic and applied research often support and inform each other, just as excellent teaching and research are often mutually nourishing.  The profiles in this volume show just how vibrant a research community The University of Winnipeg is becoming and has been.  Our future as an excellent research and teaching community depends upon, and extends our traditions. That is just as it should be.

The University of Winnipeg adopted a new Integrated Academic and Research Plan (IARP) in 2016. This plan included several commitments related to Research Services. Over the 2016-2017 academic year, a number of steps were taken towards meeting these commitments. This included increasing the number of staff in the Office by 1.75 FTE, piloting new workshops related to knowledge mobilization, and providing more writing support for larger institutional grants. 

As the Research and Innovation Office continues to work towards meeting IARP commitments, it is conducting a review of its existing services. The Office is also working with the Library and the Technology Solutions Centre to review the data storage needs of researchers. In order for these reviews to be successful, feedback and input from our community of researchers is crucial.  This feedback will inform the implementation of elements of the IARP related to the provision of research services to our research community and will assist the University in ensuring appropriate data storage is in place for researchers.

In order to collect your opinions and comments the University has created this quick online survey, which is being administered by the Department of Institutional Analysis. All responses are anonymous. 

The survey link will be open until Friday, November 17.
