From the Dean’s Office

Celebration. Preparation. Anticipation. These three words characterize FHASS’ 2015 Spring/Summer semester. This term we held our annual FHASS Student Awards ceremony, saw our English as a Second Language and General Arts and Science students graduate, hired exceptional new faculty and staff, and began planning for an active and exciting 2015-16 academic year.

As we look forward, there is already an anticipatory buzz around who this academic year’s Sheridan Reads author might be; we are working on the next series of Film for Thought; and FHASS’ faculty and staff are eager to further engage our community in Oakville, Mississauga, and Brampton so that we may continue our tradition of bringing Sheridan’s unique creative and intellectual discourse into the larger public domain. Finally, we have started planning for PEQAB’s site visit for our Creative Writing and Publishing degree, which we expect would take place sometime in November.

As you can see, by any measure, this coming academic year should prove to be stimulating and fruitful, and I look forward to witnessing FHASS’ continued success.
