We collaborate primarily with the educational, social service, and community health sectors, in their work with children, adolescents, and adults, including those who are vulnerable or have special needs. We strive to represent the University of Ottawa, and our co-sponsoring faculties (Social Sciences and Education), in these service sectors.
We aim to produce new knowledge and mobilize existing knowledge to improve practice and policy. We also provide training to many graduate and undergraduate students, as well as those in our part-time graduate certificate program in Program Evaluation.
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!
