VIU Scholarship, Research, and Creative Activity

Scholarship, Research, and Creative Activity

At VIU, research and teaching are complementary activities as both contribute to the ultimate goal of the institution – high quality learning experiences. Every day, faculty and students undertake boundary spanning research and creative activity. Together, and with community partners, they ask thought provoking questions and challenge conventional ideas. They investigate, innovate and create new knowledge and works that go on to change individual learning journeys, disciplinary knowledge, and community/industry practices. They experiment with new models and techniques forging new ground and innovative practices. And regardless of their program or disciplinary background, they constantly strive to pursue new knowledge, find solutions to complex problems, and enhance the world we all inhabit.

What's Happening

Dr. Pam Shaw and Dr. Ralph Nilson are being recognized for the outstanding contributions they have made in their fields and to Canadian public life.
Dr. Cynthia-Lou Coleman is curious about the similarities and differences between how Indigenous scientific and cultural issues are covered by the media in Canada and the United States.
VIU has been selected to participate in two federal research award programs. The Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) grant will help post-secondary institutions become more inclusive, welcome diversity, and improve research and employment opportunities for underrepresented groups. The Dimensions Pilot provides federal recognition of their work on EDI.
