We also collaborate with other organizations to undertake community-based or applied research, or to delivery community-based learning:

Recode: MRU as a Social Innovation Campus

Building on the emerging MRU Strategic Plan's focus on citizenship and community engagement, and on MRU's recent selection as a partner in the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation's RECODE program, we want to help catalyze a conversation with a small number of invited and interested students, faculty and other institutes. RECODE aims to challenge universities "to disrupt business as usual; to found and grow new social enterprises; to create partnerships across institutional and sectoral boundaries - in short, to ‘RECODE’ our culture’s operating systems in order to achieve a more just, sustainable, and beautiful world."
