A message from our Dean

Our Faculty of Education sits at the centre of a number of communities: students, professors, alumni, scientific researchers, teachers, Indigenous communities, schools, and counselors. The talents and insights that each of these communities lend to our Faculty is the source of, and support for, the quality of work that we do. From teacher education to kinesiology, from recreational health to leadership, we are bound together by our shared belief that people can make their lives better, and that we can work alongside them to support this process. We invite you to learn more about our Faculty, and potentially to join us. Learn more about us
