Research in the Faculty of Social Sciences is vibrant, relevant, and diverse. Over the years, we have built a solid foundation on which to grow. This foundation includes the innovative and dedicated researchers in the Faculty, invested in making the latest discoveries and advancing the newest theories that shed light on the challenges facing families, communities, community organizations, governments, and other institutions. The foundation also includes the Research Office staff that works tirelessly to meet the needs of our growing Faculty.

In the coming years, I look forward to working with my colleagues to forge and work toward a shared vision for research in the Faculty of Social Sciences.
