Research & Scholarship

Scholars' Council


To support Mount Royal University’s environment of growth and transition, the Faculty of Health, Community and Education established a Scholars Council in fall of 2006. Our mission is to foster a culture of scholarship among Health and Community Studies faculty, staff and students by developing and funding activities such as our Research and Scholarship Showcases and by supporting and funding conferences, workshops and symposia.
