What We Do

Changing Needs

Our work is centred around anticipating and responding to the changing needs of families, livelihoods, and living environments through research, teaching, and knowledge sharing. Knowledg sharing includes policy-relevant and community-engaged activities.

We work in five mutually reinforcing areas:

  • Research Activities
  • Student Engagement and Development
  • Community Engagement
  • Communities of Practice
  • Knowledge Mobilization

Research Clusters

Beginning from the margins, our research is focused on five intersecting research clusters, with each cluster exploring complex themes and the ways they influence work, family and well-being in all their diverse forms. When we look at the research within and across each cluster and beyond, we explore the effects on diverse families and individual well-being, changes in work and livelihoods, factors that shape work and family relationships, needed policy changes and community actions.
