“To me, community engagement is an approach to solving problems by intentionally working towards building mutual understanding, trust, and a spirit of collaboration. Community engagement involves providing space to listen to the perspectives of community members, and facilitating the creation of equitable and sustainable solutions that best serve the community.”
Program: Life Sciences (specialization in Sensory Motor Systems)
“Community engagement involves the ongoing process of building positive, mutually beneficial relationships within a community. It extends beyond single, individual actions and can add significance and context to different projects. Most importantly, community engagement is unique because it is applicable across all disciplines, making it essential for positive change.”
Program: Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour
“There are so many unique definitions of community engagement based on who you ask. To me, community engagement is getting a community together to raise awareness, develop new ideas, or tackle a social issue together as one.”
