Mark Salter, Vice-Dean, Research and Professional Development
Research is at the heart of the Faculty of Social Sciences. It provides the intellectual motor for engaged teaching, knowledge mobilization and public engagement, and powers the individual and collective projects of its professors and students. As a team, our goal is to leverage our administrative, management, and strategic skills to help our researchers apply for grants, build networks and win support. We are available at all stages of the research process to help fulfil their research and publication plans.
