Welcome and Overview

Welcome to our 2021-22 Annual Report

This Annual Report highlights the achievements and activities of our community of researchers, students, and staff over the past academic year. Together, the Department of Psychology shares a commitment to delivering outstanding research, educational, and community collaborations.


Our Commitment to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

In 2021, a Psychology Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Task Force worked diligently to develop 45 recommendations aimed at increasing the diversity of our faculty and fostering greater inclusion for everyone in our department. Our faculty, students, and staff have been working to implement a number of initiatives based on these recommendations. We will continue to identify, develop, and highlight new programs that serve the EDI goals of our community. More.

An Expanded Undergraduate Program Offering 

Our undergraduate program has received a major expansion to our Behavioural Neuroscience program. A new Undergraduate Program in Neuroscience was developed in collaboration with the Faculties of Arts, Medicine, and Science. In the fall of 2022, this program will welcome 150 students to its inaugural class. More.
