Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Knowledge mobilization is about exchanging ideas between the wider world, local communities and Laurier researchers. We work to forge relationships within and outside of Laurier to evolve our knowledge base and share what we're working on with the university, the community and the world. We invite you to work with us!

Looking For an Expert?

We can put you in touch with a researcher at is the best person to answer your questions or comment on a particular issue. Our researchers are working on projects, from local to international, and love to share what they’re working on, so don’t hesitate to contact us.

Resources for Laurier Researchers

We provide resources and workshops to help researchers engage with the community, whether it’s through social media, on the web or through planning and writing research funding proposals. Producing clear and understandable research is important to us. We help authors present their work to a wide audience, including readers in other disciplines and outside of academia.

We also host special topic meetings for researchers to meet with one another to discuss broad topics such as vulnerable populations, new media, and citizen science. These interdisciplinary meet-ups explore how a topic is being approached in different fields and from different perspectives. For more information, contact Shawna Reibling.

A Partnership for the Planet

The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT)-Laurier Partnership, a 10-year partnership agreement signed in May 2010, exists to expand the Territories’ capacity to conduct environmental research and monitoring and to train the new expertise needed to manage its natural resources for future generations. Areas of research include water science, boreal forest ecology, permafrost thaw and climate change, food security, and traditional economies.
