Faculty members not only teach within their respective disciplines, but participate in a diversity of basic and applied research projects locally, nationally and internationally. Research initiatives inform our teacher training programs, educating graduates who enter the classroom as teachers with current, relevant, and optimized professional skill-sets. Our research centres and institutes function as hubs for interdisciplinary work and engage experts from numerous nations, faculties, and schools.

Our special initiatives and partnerships link our work with that of community organizations, educational institutions, and government and industry affiliates.
