Our priority at this time is the health of safety of the Aurora College/Aurora Research Institute community, as well as the larger NWT and research communities. In response to the global pandemic of COVID-19, the Western Arctic (WARC), North Slave (NSRC) and South Slave (SSRC) Research Centres are currently closed. All of the WARC research support and logistical services for outside researchers are suspended at this time.
In my role as VP Research, I oversee the research division of Aurora College. This includes the operations of the Aurora Research Institute, and it's three research centres as well as the research administration processes required to support research programs at Aurora College. The VP Research also administers the Scientist Act for the NWT.
