Research Themes

As a means of better articulating the major cross-cutting inter/multi-disciplinary themes characterizing the research strengths of the College, a task force was established by the Dean to develop the College's Research Themes. Five inter/multi-disciplinary College Research Themes were identified during the process including (alphabetically):

  • Environment & Resources
  • Globalization & Diversity
  • Health & Well-Being
  • Public Policy & Governance
  • Work & Organization

Each of these areas has a direct link to, and aligns with, the University's Strategic Research Plan that promotes and advances research strengths for quality and innovation. You can find more information about the University of Guelph's Research Plan by visiting the Office of Research website.
