Research Relaunch Process Guide during COVID-19

MRU’s top priority remains to ensure the health and safety of our students, staff, faculty, research participants and collaborators, and our broader community. To aid in this endeavour while resuming certain research activities, we've developed a Research Relaunch Process Guide that provides direction on how on-campus and field research activity can resume in phases at MRU.

As a knowledge-seeking community, Mount Royal appreciates that intellectual inquiry benefits us all. We support the independent and collaborative scholarship of faculty and students with a particular emphasis on community-engaged research and the enhancement of the undergraduate experience.

The Office of Research, Scholarship and Community Engagement (ORSCE) is dedicated to helping research and scholarly activity from beginning to end. The ORSCE office motto for researchers is "see us early, see us often".

ORSCE fosters a culture of scholarly inquiry on campus for the betterment of the broader community. Some of our activities include:

  • Assisting with the development of research ideas;
  • Providing information on sources of project funding;
  • Conducting workshops on facets of research, scholarship and community engagement;
  • Improving grant application success through support from internal and external experts;
  • Facilitating collaborative and interdisciplinary programs of research;
  • Administering grants and awards;
  • Overseeing and supporting a diverse collection of scholarly institutes;
  • Communicating and celebrating research and scholarship of the MRU community.

We are here to help
