About Research Insights

It is widely recognized that the research and knowledge created within university settings should be packaged and disseminated in ways that benefit end users who need accessible and timely evidence. Translating and integrating research evidence into programs and policies are essential when making informed decisions that affect the health and well-being of society.

The Faculty of Community Services (FCS) is focused on highlighting the research work and collaborations that FCS faculty have with other researchers internal and external to the Ryerson community. FCS Research Insights presents plain language summaries of our faculty’s Research, as well as, practice and policy Insights so that key decision makers such as policymakers, community and health services providers, community groups and individuals can make evidence-informed decisions.
