The Centre for Public Involvement seeks to involve diverse individuals and organizations to participate in all Centre activities and to form a broad network locally, nationally, and internationally of those working to advance public involvement. Categories of association include research organizations, individuals, media and others. Centre Associates contribute to the strategic direction of the Centre by:
- Writing or publishing scholarly and community engagement articles related to research projects and public involvement.
- Sourcing funding opportunities in collaboration with the Centre to support research projects.
- Identifying and exploring expertise and interest represented by scholars at the University of Alberta and at other universities in Canada and Internationally to expand and establish the Centre’s profile and networks.
