Colleen Christopherson-Cote Coordinator


Colleen Christopherson-Cote is the coordinator for the Saskatoon Poverty Reduction Partnership, community partnership and evaluation facilitator for the Saskatoon Housing Initiatives Partnership, and the community co-lead for the Evaluation and Analysis working group of the SSHRC-funded Community First: Impacts of Community Engagement (CFICE). The interconnect among all three partnerships provides her with the opportunity to catalyze, convene, and coordinate community-based work to drive change and build capacity around improving the lives of vulnerable people in Saskatoon. Fostering new and existing community- campus relationships is a core priority of her work, understanding that engaging community throughout research processes is integral to successfully reducing poverty.
