Centre for Public Involvement
The University of Alberta and the City have established the Centre for Public Involvement. The Centre is dedicated to leadership and excellence in the theory and practice of public involvement.
The Centre was created in response to a recognized need for more effective public involvement processes. Through the work undertaken by the Centre, more effective public processes will enrich decision making at all levels. The framework established by the partnering organizations draws on the expertise of each. This creates an environment where collaboration leads to public involvement results that are not otherwise possible.
The Centre brings together scholarship, policy and practice, to attract expertise from government, community and academia that can explore and test alternative public involvement practices, based on activities and research from around the world.
The Centre for Public Involvement, through its partner organizations, provides leadership in understanding and applying innovative public involvement ideas, practices and technologies for citizen participation and deliberation (2011).
The Centre for Public Involvement is designed to contribute to public involvement through theory, policy, and practice, influencing the state of the field through the provision of the following core services:
- Research and applied learning
- Knowledge mobilization
- Process Design and Impact Assessment
- Education and Training
- Project Management and Partnership Development
Synergy between the university and the city is what it takes to build great universities and great cities.
