Annual Review 2017-18

We are excited to report on what we have accomplished together. It has been a year to celebrate. From increasing our enrolment numbers across the board, to making significant headway towards diversifying our campus, to implementing the first phase of our faculty renewal plan – Queen’s is a fantastic place to be, whether you are a student, staff, or faculty member.

We have had the opportunity to work with our student association, the Arts and Science Undergraduate Society, to help champion their key initiatives, such as Life After ArtSci and the Arts and Science Undergraduate Research Fund (ASURF). At the graduate level we introduced a suite of recruitment initiatives to support a growing graduate student community. I am proud to work with our Dean’s Council of amazing alumni who help provide insights on industry trends and inspire the next generation through mentoring and advice.

There have been many notable accomplishments over the past year, but a few of the stand-out moments include:

  • recruiting 34 and welcoming 18 new tenure-track faculty members with keen attention to equity, diversity, and inclusivity in the hiring process;
  • welcoming our five new Indigenous pre-doctoral fellows to the Faculty;
  • launching the new Arthur B. McDonald Canadian Astroparticle Physics Research Institute;and,
  • unveiling the first pan-university certificate in Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Creativity.

This Annual Review captures our stories from the past year. We hope you enjoy seeing what we have been up to and where we are going.
