FACULTY OF EXTENSION RESEARCH R&D REPORT 2008

Extension welcomes new centre: Community-University Partnership for the Study of Children, Youth, and Families (CUP) People of CUP

Jeff Bisanz, CUP Director

Critical to CUP’s work is the Steering Committee, where individuals from diverse backgrounds representing community, government, and University provide guidance to CUP’s Secretariat. CUP’s Secretariat is in turn led by the Leadership Team, which consists of CUP’s Director, Associate Director, 3 Assistant Directors, and a Policy Associate. Support staff, including an Office Administrator, a Project Development Officer, and a Communications Coordinator provide support across all of CUP’s activities, while numerous Project Staff provide support to specific initiatives.

Looking Ahead “Joining the Faculty of Extension opens up a world of possibilities for CUP–we are in a better position to plan further into the future and engage with both the community and the University in new and different ways. CUP has always been successful because of its ability to be opportunistic; joining the Faculty of Extension is one of those opportunities that couldn’t be passed over. I look forward to seeing where this merger will take us in the future.” ~Jeff Bisanz, CUP’s Director

O

n July 1, 2008, the Faculty of Extension officially became the new home for the Community-University Partnership for the

Study of Children, Youth, and Families (CUP). CUP was created in July 2000 in response to a desire among

many individuals and organizations interested in improving linkages between the community and University to support the healthy development of children, youth, and families. CUP was fostered in its first eight years of operations by the Health Sciences Council at the University of Alberta. Discussions about a merger with the Faculty of Extension began in 2007 as both the Faculty and CUP

How CUP Works CUP engages in research, lifelong learning, and knowledgesharing activities by consulting with researchers, service providers, and policymakers; brokering relationships and collaborations among them; and taking a leadership role in specific projects. For example, CUP provides consulting to new researchers at the University of Alberta who are interested in working with the community; provides

agency-student matching for student practicum placements; and takes the lead on projects and initiatives when resources are available. Examples of CUP’s research work include evaluations of the Big Brothers and Big Sisters’ In-School Mentoring program and the Kids in the Hall Bistro program. CUP is currently managing the research component of the Families First Edmonton project, where 1,200 low-income families participate in one of four intervention groups to determine the best approach in connecting families with low income to existing services.

Beyond Research Although research has always been and will continue to be a key focus for CUP, in recent years CUP has expanded its work in the areas of lifelong learning and knowledge sharing. Two initiatives are key in this expansion:

In partnership with the Alberta Centre for Child, Family, and Community Research (ACCFCR), CUP received funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council for the Mobilizing Knowledge About Development (MKAD) project. This project was
