Congratulations to Dr. Barry Wright on being named director of the Niagara Community Observatory.
“I’m looking forward to working with the Brock community and with our community partners to take the next steps in ensuring the NCO serves the needs of the people of Niagara,” says Wright, whose appointment as director of the Niagara Community Observatory (NCO) was announced Sept. 17.
The Niagara Community Observatory, launched officially in mid-2009, works in partnership with the Niagara community to foster, produce, and disseminate evidence-based research on current and emerging issues. Since its inception, the group has produced 15 research briefs on everything from farmers’ markets to social media to the state of Niagara’s lakes and rivers.
