Initially, the community chats were launched as an opportunity for members of the York community to participate in an informal discourse about the new strategic research plan.  However, they have also emerged as a useful mechanism for researchers to discuss a broad spectrum of research issues with the VPRI in an informal manner.

“As we continue to move forward in the strategic research planning process, I invite researchers and members of the York community to a continuing series of chats to discuss issues that are on their minds with respect to research, including the development of any aspect of the new strategic research plan,” said Haché.

Community Chats with the VPRI will be held at the following dates and times:

As part of the ongoing nature of the consultation process, York students, staff and faculty are invited to share their thoughts on the development of the strategic research plan. For more information, visit the strategic research plan website.
