From the desk of Gerry Cooper - research culture!

Tuesday, April 9, 2013

Dear Windsor Program Students:
It was with great pleasure that Dr. Figlewicz, Dr. Awuku, Mike Farquhar and I joined you last night to chat about the developing research culture at the Windsor Program. We were absolutely delighted to see so many of you in attendance!

Clearly, this is a work in progress and it will take time, energy and resources.
That said, we cannot create this research-friendly culture without your support and participation.
As we discussed, we are focussing our efforts on how to engage learners and mentors such that new relationships will lead to projects. Concurrently, we are trying to locate funding to help get this started.

If last night's meeting (and the enthusiasm that was present in the room) is any measure of our prognosis, then I'd say we are looking at a very bright future!
Special thanks to Kathleen Milne for all of her efforts in getting this ball rolling!

Warm regards,
Gerry
