New schedule now available for community workshops on York's Strategic Research Plan

New schedule now available for community workshops on York's Strategic Research Plan

Are you interested in having a say about the development of York’s new Strategic Research Plan?

Join Robert Haché, vice-president research & innovation, as he conducts a series of workshops with University community members to probe values and perceptions regarding research at York.  The feedback and discussion arising from these workshops will be used to inform the Strategic Research Plan: 2013 – 2018.  All York University students, staff and faculty are invited to participate.

Robert Haché

"These workshops are an important and valuable feedback tool in the construction of the new plan,” said Robert Haché, vice-president research & innovation. “I look forward to continuing the discussion with members of the York community, as we shape the future of York research together, and to  developing a new plan that each member of the York research community can see themselves a part of.”

During the workshops, participants will be asked to share their hopes and concerns with respect to the new Strategic Research Plan, highlight what they feel are the current and future core research values for York as an institution, provide their feedback on areas of research excellence and identify future areas for continuous improvement.  Participants will have an opportunity to share their thoughts in small groups and each group will present their feedback to the larger audience.

The workshops will be facilitated by Celia Haig-Brown, professor, Faculty of Education and Gary Miller, instructor, Schulich School of Business MBA program and the Schulich Executive Education Centre.
