Call for Proposals – Community University Victoria Conference (CUVIC) 2014

Posted:November 26, 2013

Beyond Engagement: Creating integration, innovation and impact

May 20-22, 2014 in Victoria, BC, Canada

As universities seek to enhance their potential to contribute to the public good, there is growing effort globally to promote community-university engagement. At the same time communities, organizations and governments seek to leverage the knowledge and resource capacity of universities to address community needs.  CUVIC 2014 is an opportunity to reflect on these efforts and enable community-university innovation and action within the institutional, Indigenous, national and global context.

The conference will be of interest to faculty, students, community (business, Indigenous nations and organizations, non-government organizations, community groups, funders and governments), higher education administrators, researchers, scholars, national and global community-university and community-based research networks.

Abstracts are due January 31 2014. See submission details: http://www.uvic.ca/cuvic2014/program/abstracts/index.php

The CUVIC 2014 Conference is an initiative of the Provost and the Institute for Studies & Innovation in Community-University Engagement (ISICUE).


The challenge of tenure and promotion procedures should not be permitted to unduly limit the growth of the movement for community-university engagement in Canada. A dialogue for action on this issue should be launched and sustained until this obstacle is permanently removed.*
