The Centre has now expanded to include 44 Senior Researchers (regular uOttawa professors), 8 of whom are considered to be Core Members, and 14 Affiliate Researchers, who are members of the research community with interests in CRECS’ mission. The Core Researchers have been highly successful in acquiring external funding through Canadian federal granting councils, federal and provincial departments and ministries and, foundations, donor agencies and community sector organizations.
The Advisory Committee meets about once per year and provides input on strategic direction. The committee consists of the Vice Deans of Research from both Faculties and members of CRECS community and educational partner organizations.
The Centre for Research on Educational and Community Services (CRECS) collaborates in research, evaluation, and training with organizations in the educational, social service, and health sectors to improve social programs and policies for citizens, especially those facing social exclusion.
CRECS is the only bi-faculty research centre at uOttawa!
