In Fall 2019, a new course on immigration research launched at Dalhousie University. The course was designed to develop research that caters to the interest of community partners. This form of university course seeks to transform the classroom into an incubator for collaborative research with a goal to produce research relevant for community partners.

Presented at the P2P 2021 Workshop Series, in this workshop, the lead instructor presented an overview of the course. Community partners spoke about their experience in this course.
