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.
