Reforum conducts research on policies within post-secondary institutions and collects insights to advise on incorporating equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) practices. At Reforum, we work with researchers, school administration, and EDI experts to create frameworks that aim to better address the needs of marginalized students at the post-secondary level.


Reforum is seeking Coordinators to either conduct research on institutional Reporting and disciplinary and Accountability processes, or organize team data and logistics.

Within the research fields, Coordinators will conduct research and analysis to gain a better understanding of system-based issues at Canadian post-secondary institutions. The primary function of this role is to develop a working hypothesis for improving these systems, and design models for reform outcomes that will be implemented on a rolling basis across institutions. All team members will report to the Reforum team lead for the Winter 2021 term (Zooni Khosla).
