College of Arts and Science celebrates outstanding research

At an event, the college recognized the work of more than 40 scientists, scholars and artists


Researchers in the College of Arts and Science are leading exciting innovations—from advancing the science of indoor air quality to using arts-based approaches to help vulnerable people escape street lifestyles.

On March 22, 2023, the College of Arts and Science at the University of Saskatchewan (USask) held a day-long celebration of research, scholarly and artistic work.

“Through research, scholarship, partnership, creativity, and the sharing of knowledge, technology, and expertise, we are advancing new understandings of the world around us, driving innovation, creating new opportunities for our students, informing policy, and enhancing the quality of life in communities,” said Dr. Bram Noble (PhD), vice-dean research, scholarly and artistic work in the College of Arts and Science.

This year’s annual College Plan Celebration Day recognized the work of more than 40 scientists, scholars and artists in the college. Researchers spoke about their projects in a series of new videos that played on screens set up around the USask campus. Other projects were showcased through words and still images.

All of the featured projects can be viewed online:

The event was held to celebrate progress on Think Big – Be Bold, the college’s plan to 2025. Since launching the seven-year plan in 2018, the college has held regular events to recognize the contributions of faculty, students and staff towards the plan’s goals.

This year’s event focused on the third college-specific commitment in the plan: Inspire and Foster Excellence in Research, Scholarly and Artistic Work.
