I2I: Ideas to Ivory Tower

The SSHRC Coordinator and Research Facilitator in the Office of the
Vice-President Research are pleased to announce the third session in the
new “I2I: Ideas to Ivory Tower” community-university presentation series.

The goal of this series is to bring the research needs of potential
municipal and provincial community partners to the attention of
university faculty in order to enable greater collaboration between the
community and the University of Saskatchewan. Various community
representatives are being invited to the University this year to
describe their agencies and what research is needed, from their
perspective, to assist them in achieving their goals.

The vision of the Saskatchewan Children’s Advocate Office is that the
interests and well-being of children and youth are respected and valued
in our communities and in government practice, policy and legislation.
The Office promotes the interests of, and acts as a voice for, children
who have concerns about provincial government services by engaging in
public education, working to resolve disputes, conducting independent
investigations and recommending improvements in programs for children to
the government and/or the Legislative Assembly.

Marvin Bernstein (Children’s Advocate), Glenda Cooney (Deputy Children’s
Advocate) and Vanesa Vanstone (Advocate) will describe the many services
offered by the Office and how researchers in the humanities, social
sciences, law and education might find connections with the Office.
