Welcome to Simon Fraser University!
In choosing to attend Simon Fraser University — a university which opened in 1965 with a campus that is now recognized as architecturally significant, and which grew to have campuses in downtown Vancouver and in Surrey — you are coming to a welcoming University noted for being student-centred, research-driven and community engaged.
As a graduate student at Simon Fraser University you will join a community of 5,000 graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from over 100 countries, a global fabric that reflects SFU’s diversity. You will have the opportunity to further your intellectual development and career opportunities at a university that has a strong academic and community history and is internationally recognized and ranked as one of the top institutions in the world.
Despite this scale, every student is valued, and encouraged to excel in their chosen discipline, both on and off the campus. You will be supported academically and challenged intellectually and given every opportunity to develop and circulate your research. At the same time, we hope the SFU ethos of engaging with the world, and thinking through local contexts and knowledges inspires you. Within this global context, it is significant that SFU is located on unceded, traditional and ancestral Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh territories: we are honoured to live and work on these Coast Salish lands.
Welcome to SFU. I trust you will make the most of your graduate education and make the university itself a better place.
Dr. Jeff Derksen
Dean and Associate Provost
Professor of English
