Message from the Dean

School of Arts and Social Science

Welcome to the School of Arts and Social Science. This school includes the following programs: English, historical studies, humanities, psychology, social/cultural studies and business administration.

My first impression of Grenfell Campus is of excitement; there is such a spark here.  As founding dean, I'm eager to build this new school based on what has worked in the past. I want to hear from students, staff and faculty, and use these conversations to help guide the new school through this exciting journey. I strongly believe that academic governance should happen together and not be dictated by the administration. I care very much about people, so I want to ensure that I facilitate an environment where everyone feels their voice is being heard.

In addition to determining the school's priorities together, I do have some personal priorities.  I want to ensure that I facilitate an environment where everyone feels their voice is being heard.  Second, I am committed to community engagement and will be working with the Corner Brook community with my own research.  Third, I am so passionate about Grenfell and what it represents that I would like to work with Recruitment and Student Services to attract more students to our school and the campus as a whole.
