About the Office of Community-Based Research
Officially launched in 2007 and core-supported by the Vice-President Research, the Office of Community-Based Research at UVic (OCBR-UVic) is a community–university partnership. Our mission is to create and support inter-disciplinary and multi-sectoral engagement and research to create vibrant, sustainable and inclusive communities. Whether it's in the Capital Regional District, on Vancouver Island, in British Columbia, Canada or globally, the CBR and campus-community partnership movement is growing and creating locally relevant and globally significant practical, research and policy solutions to the major issues of our time. OCBR-UVic have created partnerships and collaborated with various NGO's, community members, business, funder and government representatives on a multitude of topics such as food security, homelessness, and climate change. However, OCBR is not limited to these topics for community based research. Our office responds to emerging issues by supporting academics, students and the wider community to work together to connect research to on-the-ground solutions.
