Ryerson’s Faculty of Community Services is home to an active and multidisciplinary research enterprise.
Our research centres bring together scholars, students, professionals and members of the community to address research questions, generate new knowledge and collaborate.
The Ryerson City Building Institute is a multidisciplinary centre focused on issues relevant to city regions nationally and globally. The Institute brings together political leadership, policy ideas and people from diverse backgrounds to address critical urban challenges.
We expand the scholarship of discovery relating to the scholarship of teaching and learning. Using a more structured and cohesive approach, we maximize the collective strengths of the Faculty of Community Services.
Guided by principles of equity, social justice, and health as a human right, our mission is to promote greater health equity – locally, nationally and globally.
We support research that promotes health in at-risk groups. By developing and testing psychosocial interventions, we improve the quality of life for individuals living with a range of physical and mental conditions.
We provide leadership in rigorous interdisciplinary, critical reflective research. We lead the development of knowledge on communities affected by exclusion and marginalization – paying attention to their diverse realities and experiences.
We formulate policies and solutions that address the concerns confronting urban growth and change within the Greater Golden Horseshoe, as well as educating students to take leadership roles in these pursuits.
We are dedicated to generating new knowledge in the areas of research, education, theory, and policy to influence professional practice related to issues of violence against women and children.
