The University of Western Ontario's policies, procedures and commitment to collaborative research are:
"The University is committed to research excellence and innovation. To date, the University’s strengths as a research-intensive institution have derived in good measure from the efforts of individual scholars within the established scholarly disciplines. Increasingly, however, such areas are expanding to include a wide array of topics of investigation posing challenges best met through the development of more complex models of research.
To meet this challenge, the University encourages the formation of collaborative research entities, both within and across traditional disciplinary boundaries."
