Welcome to SGSPA

Fahim QuadirWelcome!

At the School of Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs (SGSPA), we embrace innovative thinking as the basis for advancing both the long- and short-term goals of graduate and postdoctoral education at Queen’s. Building on the University’s longstanding tradition of excellence in teaching and research, we foster a culture of bold knowledge production and reflective new thinking and learning to inspire our graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to lead the way toward a better future.

To this end, the SGSPA is devoted to delivering an exceptional suite of services to our community. We encourage you to take the time to explore the wealth of resources available to support your academic, professional, and personal ambitions. By promoting a vibrant and thriving graduate and postdoctoral community, enhancing the graduate and postdoctoral experience, and constantly developing new research and learning opportunities, we collectively work to strengthen Queen’s reputation as a trailblazing research institution—one with a powerful vision of an equitable, just, and sustainable society predicated on the values of care, compassion, creativity, and curiosity.
