About the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
As Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at Simon Fraser University, I am delighted to serve the largest and most diverse Faculty at SFU and to work with faculty, staff, students, alumni, and the wider community to build a stimulating learning and research environment.
What we do in FASS is framed by two basic commitments: to help develop an engaged and informed citizenry primed for a lifetime of being actively involved in civic and public life; and to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to take advantage of the diverse work opportunities that will come their way and to adapt to an environment that will change over the course of their life.
Home to a range of highly ranked programs, the Faculty has 315 continuing faculty members and 97 staff spread across 16 Departments and Schools, 10 programs and a language institute. Annually, the Faculty teaches some 12,000 undergraduate students and 774 graduate students.
I invite you to learn more about our Faculty and our shared commitment to the value of education.
Dr. Jane Pulkingham
Dean, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
