CERA/Kipp Research Lab

History

Made possible by a generous endowment from Gladys and Harvey Kipp, the Gladys and Harvey Kipp Research Lab first opened in 2009. The Kipps were long-time residents of Chilliwack, where they worked as manager and postmaster for Canada Post for many decades. Their commitment to the community and philanthropic spirit continued after they retired, and included their final gift to UFV in 2009.

A group of faculty members envisioned the lab space. In particular, Kevin Busswood and Elizabeth Dennis conceptualized a dedicated research space and tools to promote social research at UFV for the benefit of the wider community.

“When you get to talk to the people you’re working with and they tell you how they’ve been impacted, it’s just the best feeling to know you made a difference. Seeing how you can take your breadth of knowledge, share it with someone else, then see the impact on their life is definitely a huge highlight!”
