As a comprehensive university, and the premier research institute in New Brunswick – responsible for 75% of publicly funded research – we pride ourselves on embracing and supporting all aspects of research and related scholarly activity in the pursuit and advancement of knowledge.

The University of New Brunswick’s (UNB) Strategic Plan presents an overarching goal to be the best teaching and learning institute in Canada, balancing and integrating excellence in education and research. This goal will be supported by the initiatives of UNB’s Strategic Research Plan (SRP). As well, many granting agencies require universities to have a current SRP, as it allows applicants to position their proposed research within the university’s overall mission. The SRP provides value for all researchers in understanding our research strengths and identifying synergies that will focus discussions in building critical mass and research excellence.
