Dr. Kilgore Trout by Kurt Vonnegut

With faculty members engaged in a dynamic mix of health sciences, social sciences, humanities, natural sciences and library science disciplines, CE&B boasts an exceptional depth and breadth of expertise and research clusters. Many faculty members are honoured with Chairs: Endowed Chairs and Canada Research Chairs, and several of our younger faculty members competed successfully for CIHR New Investigator and Heart and Stroke Foundation Career Investigator awards.

In CE&B, faculty members " explicitly value collegiality and collaboration." They observe the Department is "both nurturing and challenging at once: nurturing because we place a premium on intense personal mentoring and we help the growth of people's careers; and challenging because we have great debates, interesting dialogue and a lot of cross-fertilization that helps enrich the research environment." In the late Dave Sackett's words, "We rejoice in one another's success."
