August 28, 2014

Researchers at New Brunswick Community College will now be eligible to apply for major funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). “This eligibility is an opportunity for us specifically to increase the profile of our humanities and social sciences programs … by pursuing research in those areas. This also opens doors to our faculty, staff and students studying these programs to explore research as a means to solve everyday problems that impact our society,” said NBCC’s Director of Applied Research & Innovation, Diane Burt. NBCC’s SSHRC eligibility has the potential to support the college's achievement of 3 of its strategic goals for applied research and innovation, including innovations in teaching, learning and services for students, and social innovation.
