On Thursday, June 15 2017 our campus community came together at Research in Action, Bow Valley College’s inaugural applied research poster presentation.
Alongside two other federally-funded research projects, the event showcased the Centre for Excellence in Immigrant and Intercultural Advancement’s Enhancing the Wellbeing of Immigrant Women Retirees.
Nearly 80 colleagues from across campus attended the casual lunch-hour reception with remarks from President Laura Jo Gunter and Russ Wilde, Director of Academic Innovation and Applied Research. Attendees chatted with research teams leading projects in the School of Community Studies with the Iniikokaan Aboriginal Centre, Academic Innovation and Applied Research, and the Centre for Excellence in Immigrant and Intercultural Advancement.
The showcase provided researchers an opportunity to share their early insights and demonstrate how applied research actively contributes to teaching and learning on campus while fostering connections with community partners.

This research is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and is conducted in partnership with the Calgary Immigrant Women’s Association.
