Service updates in response to COVID-19

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the Faculty of Humanities has shifted from in-person to remote support. We continue to follow the guidance of government agencies and health authorities concerning the health and safety of our community, and will resume regular in-person services as appropriate.

In the meantime, all Humanities staff can be reached via email and telephone during regular business hours. In-person meetings are available by appointment.

To request an in-person meeting with Acting Dean, Annalee Lepp, please email her assistant at

For Associate Dean Academic, Lisa Surridge, or Associate Dean Research, Alex D’Arcy, please email the Humanities’ Administrative Assistant at
