Associate Dean, Scholarly, Research, and Creative Activities

"The Creative School is renowned for its distinctive and vibrant culture of scholarly research, and creative (SRC) activities. Its nine schools and eighteen research centres make up a dynamic SRC ecosystem in which faculty and students work closely with community and industry partners to engage in path-breaking initiatives dedicated to real-world transformation."

An international leader in practice-based research, creative scholarship, and design thinking, The Creative School is a nexus for transdisciplinary research. The collaborative work of its faculty and students intervenes in society’s most pressing challenges, which require creative agility and exceed the capacity of any single discipline and any one individual. Dedicated to providing a strong infrastructure for SRC activities to thrive, The Creative School fosters a research culture that advances justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion as foundational to SRC innovation, excellence, and relevance. The Creative School is home to bold creatives who are pushing the potential of new technologies to activate more accessible maker cultures, change sector practices, vitalize social movements, and bring more sustainable and equitable futures into being."
