Promoting Collaboration Between Institutions

Main Content

Research on Colleges

One of CICan’s priorities is to showcase and expand research that is done on colleges and institutes, including research in both the organizational context, and research that explores teaching, learning and student success in the system.

CICan wishes to celebrate and enhance this research, promoting collaboration between institutions, and enabling them to benefit from research undertaken by others.

Many staff and faculty do research for graduate programs, institutional research initiatives, and to support proposals for project funding. There are also a number of university research programs focused on the college and institute system. CICan is pleased to include this topic in our resource library.
