Laurier Centre for Community Research, Learning and Action

The Centre for Community Research, Learning and Action (CCRLA) is an interdisciplinary research centre located in Laurier’s Faculty of Science. Our work is focused on developing community partnerships and producing research, learning and action that advances community well-being and social justice. CCRLA facilitates community-based research by brokering linkages between community partners, and Laurier student and faculty researchers. 

CCRLA provides an activity centre for community-focused and engaged research, social policy development and community action. We bring together researchers, students and community members to advance knowledge, inform practice, and promote community well-being and social change. The defining feature of the centre is its commitment to collaborative processes between university, community, industry and policy partners that honour the unique wisdom and skills of the non-academic community.

Speaker Series and Events

Each year the Centre for Community Research, Learning and Action (CCRLA) chooses an area of focus that relates to our vision and mission with an aim to explore a specific issue and more deeply understand the terms and concepts associated with broad trends.
