Message from the Dean


Dear staff, students, and faculty members of the Faculty of Arts and Science,

There is a sense of excitement in the air as we continue to build on our bold successes. 

We continue to realize the vision of FAS 2025, a transformative 10-year plan for the faculty that reflects our creativity, passion and diversity. Our faculty-wide events, including the Beyond Disciplines public discussion series, attract audiences through eye-opening and engaging interdisciplinary research.

We are also leading the way in offering students access to unique, hands-on learning opportunities as with our Jurist-in-Residence program. Having a jurist of Judge Minc’s stature join our faculty is a great honour and students have had the wonderful opportunity to benefit from his many years of experience in law and social justice issues.

Other exciting FAS projects include Montreal 2050, a hub for research and action with the goal of creating a city at the leading edge of urban design and planning.

To keep tabs on all inspirational initiatives, bookmark our news page, follow us on Twitter, and join our Facebook group

Lastly, I wish to extend a warm welcome to all students who are joining us for the first time. You are now part of a wonderful family. We are all here to support you as you begin your academic journey with us. 

André Roy,
Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Science
