Experience Makes a Difference

Academic studies. Career exploration. Community involvement.

We aim to enrich undergraduate education in the Faculty of Social Sciences through fostering unique approaches to learning within the classroom and more actively engaging students in the community, as well as promoting strong relationships between academic studies, career exploration and community involvement.

Community-Engaged Research Ethics

Spearheaded by Social Sciences faculty with expertise in community-based/community-engaged research (CBR/CER), two workshops on the ethics of community-engaged research were held in November of 2014 and March of 2015. The purposes of the workshops was threefold: to connect those interested in engaging in this research, address potential ethical issues which may arise in the ethics application process to the McMaster Research Ethics Board (MREB) and create a usable tool which will promote and support ethical community-engaged research.
