Research Commons

Our Vision

  • Realizing the full potential of our researchers.

Our Mission

  • To foster the critical knowledge, skills, confidence and ultimate success of our researchers through mobilizing key resources at the university.
  • To support the impactful work of our researchers every step along their academic career.
  • To increase Tri-council and non-Tri-council engagement and grant success.

Dedicated to supporting researchers at all levels and in all disciplines, the Research Commons is your gateway towards research excellence. Launched in January 2020, the Research Commons is the Office of VP Research’s commitment to enabling research success at York University. We offer a series of targeted workshops available to research stream faculty of all levels and in all disciplines. In the summer months of May to July, a hands-on grant clinic is available for those seeking one-on-one grantsmanship and mentorship from experienced researchers.
