Research Impact

"Research" encompasses creative endeavours and other scholarly activities that foster new knowledge. Critical to the University’s success are its strategic research clusters, which have been identified as a function of their critical mass (highly-qualified personnel), performance (impact) and distinctiveness:

  • Anxiety, Stress & Pain
  • The Digital Future
  • Water, Environment, & Clean Energy
  • Health Equity
  • Social Justice & Community Safety

Not only is it key that the University continues focusing on high-impact research, but it is essential that research successes are communicated and celebrated within the community.
