Institutes at MRU are financially independent, relying exclusively on funding and investment partnerships with donors and organizations in the broader community. Our current funding partners make everything we do possible:
COMMUNITY-PARTNERED LEARNINGWe also collaborate with other organizations to undertake community-based or applied research, or to delivery community-based learning:
- The Calgary Foundation
- Trico Charitable Foundation
- Momentum and Thrive
Building on the emerging MRU Strategic Plan's focus on citizenship and community engagement, and on MRU's recent selection as a partner in the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation's RECODE program, we want to help catalyze a conversation with a small number of invited and interested students, faculty and other institutes. RECODE aims to challenge universities "to disrupt business as usual; to found and grow new social enterprises; to create partnerships across institutional and sectoral boundaries - in short, to ‘RECODE’ our culture’s operating systems in order to achieve a more just, sustainable, and beautiful world."
