Building Social Infrastructure: How can we increase the impact of our institutions to better strengthen our communities?

RECODE’s new discussion paper explores how higher education institutions can harness and leverage their assets (financial, physical, relational, research and education) to build social infrastructure that will positively impact communities and advance societal well-being.

Maximizing the Capacities of Advanced Education Institutions to Build Social Infrastructure for Canadian Communities was commissioned by RECODE and Simon Fraser University for a recent roundtable dialogue of 19 university presidents held during the 2017 C2U Expo in Surrey, BC.
