The Community-University Research Exchange (CURE) promotes community-driven social justice research by facilitating research collaborations between Concordia students and grassroots community groups. Community groups make research requests and students undertake that research, often for class credit.
The project is an active way to decentralize sustainability politics, facilitating community-driven social justice projects for students in the classroom, independently, and/or in the wider community. Each semester, the CURE collective (and CURE coordinator) engages in outreach through tabling, classroom announcements, postering, flyering, meetings with professors, community groups, and students.
