Research Scholar

In keeping with our commitment to collaborative research partnerships between diverse communities and the academic community, the Centre has established three affiliations:

  • Community Research Associates
  • Academic Research Associates
  • Research Scholars

These Research Associate positions provide an official affiliation to the Centre for Research and Education on Violence Against Women and Children, and to the University of Western Ontario. These positions formalize the relationship between those who recognize the many contributions to the work of the Centre made by diverse community members and academic researchers.

The Centre reviews and accepts Research Associates for a renewable three year term on an ongoing basis which must be approved by the Centre’s Advisory Board.
