Community-Based Research

The Learning Exchange is increasing its capacity to support community-based research activities. By bringing together members of the DTES community and the University, we can add to the scope and impact of research.

Community-based research at UBC

Making connections

We can link community organizations and faculty to facilitate participatory research and knowledge exchange.

Sharing research results

Shared community and university access to research – both academic research findings and community-generated materials – is a key part of our Making Research Accessible in the DTES initiative.

Space at the Learning Exchange

The Learning Exchange offers a free space that lends itself to research activities while being welcoming to community members. For more information, please contact Katherine Cheng.
