Vibrant, diverse partnerships and close collaboration are fundamental to Re-Code’s mission because a variety of perspectives and practices offer the best chance of achieving our goals.

Key Collaborators and
Strategic Partnerships

Re-Code values diverse perspectives, inviting collaborators and strategic partners to implement activities and assist with program design. The complex nature of our problems means that none of us can solve them alone. Fortunately, the interplay of different ideas and perspectives fuels creativity and discovery in a way that working in silos does not. Put simply; we are smarter, stronger, and more effective together.

The national community of practice that we were introduced to, the support and advocacy from the RECODE team over the years, and the friendships developed are priceless contributions [from the McConnell Foundation] to our New Brunswick ecosystem. We will be profoundly grateful for these as we continue on this journey together. [There are great strides that we still have to take, but we take this journey knowing that we do not do this work alone.]

We are officially the first Canadian Community College to become a changemaker campus! This COULD NOT have been achieved without the drive, innovative visioning and funding provided to us from the RECODE program.
