Engage in Global Challenges

With leading researchers in today’s critical issues, from climate action to democracy to health outcomes, combined with our focus on developing entrepreneurship and a global mindset in our students, we effect positive outcomes. Working with peers and colleagues around the world, these efforts are underpinned by our shared commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals.

We will leverage our experience, approach and connections to help address humanity’s most complex problems and questions.


Through this strategy we will:

Cultivate a thriving research and teaching environment that deepens the undergraduate and graduate experience and prepares students for varied careers.

Enable and value interdisciplinarity and diverse forms of scholarship, notably in community-centred climate innovation, to spark creativity and collaboration.

Invest in world-class faculty and infrastructure, while connecting SFU scholars with national and international research networks.
