The new AU Research Centre website is up and running, and It’s the place to go for all the news about AU’s ?scholarly, research and creative activities.?
As the site explains, AU’s 2006-2011 Strategic University Plan (SUP) ?commits Athabasca University to building new capacity as a research institution, and provides a framework for the development of a viable and purposeful research agenda.?
The new site reflects AU’s research objectives, including the support of provincial research goals; expanding new research and scholarship projects and fostering existing research; participating in federal government initiatives; and reflecting the priorities of national research councils.
Students interested in the Graduate Student Research Fund (GSRF) can find out about application guidelines and deadlines, and the section on Research Ethics offers in-depth information on AU’s research policies, as well as links to the university’s Research Ethics Board.
Other sections include info on Externally Funded Research, Internally Funded Research, and AU’s Arts and Science Research Talk series. There’s a lot to explore, so be sure to check out this great new resource!
