About me

An enthusiastic professor, administrator and researcher with the College of Arts and Science, Harley Dickinson completed his Ph.D. in Sociology at Lancaster University in the United Kingdom. Joining the University of Saskatchewan as an assistant professor of Sociology in 1983, Dickinson was granted tenure in 1985 and promoted to the rank of full professor in 1991.

With extensive teaching experience at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, Dickinson was appointed Associate Dean, Social Sciences, in 2008. He has also served for five years as Head of the Department of Sociology, as well as several years as Director of the Social Research Unit.

Dickinson believes the College of Arts and Science’s dynamic environment provides many opportunities to be engaged and creative, and he finds great satisfaction in helping build new opportunities for both faculty and students.
