Additional information

Lynn is excited to have the opportunity to help make connections between community-based organizations and University of Regina faculty members and students to facilitate community-based research projects and community service learning. Nothing gives her more pleasure than to conduct or facilitate research that helps contribute to positive social change.

She is on the management committee for Community Campus Engage Canada, a national network and community of practice for organizations and individuals involved in community-campus engagement. She is also the co-lead for the western hub for the Canadian Phlanthropy Partnership Research Network, funded through a SSHRC Partnership Grant to evaluate the role and actions of Canadian grantmaking foundations in addressing issues of social inequalities and environmental challenges. 

The research for her PhD focussed on funding policies and structures in the nonprofit sector. Her book Giving Us a Sporting Chance: The Story of Sask Sport, highlights the unique collaborative governance model of Saskatchewan Lotteries and chronicles the history of amateur sport and its role in running the lottery system as a fundraiser for sport, culture and recreation. 

When Lynn is not wearing her "academic hat" through her role with the Community Engagement and Research Centre, she is a partner in a Regina-based public relations firm, Benchmark Public Relations.
