Panel Organizer: Sally Rutherford, Canadian Association for Graduate Studies 

The session is based on the opinion piece written by Dr. Martha Crago in University Affairs that addresses the need for academics to share knowledge and ideas with the general public and with policy makers. The panel would focus on the challenges—and importance—of incorporating up-to date research findings and social shifts into public policy. The diverse panel would address the issue from the points of view of the insularity of both the public service and the academy – and how this divide can be bridged.
