Welcome to Healthy Communities Research Network

Advancing the quality of community life

The Healthy Communities Research Network (HCRN) at the University of Waterloo is a collaborative web of faculty and graduate students dedicated to studying, critiquing, and evaluating the civic, socio-cultural, and environmental dimensions of health and well-being within community life. HCRN endeavours to produce socially relevant findings and recommendations that advance social science, policy, and social innovation, strengthen local communities, and improve the quality of community life.  

Considering grad school?

If you are a serious student with a passion for issues related to the quality of community life, please contact Troy Glover for information about joining the network.
