About Our Group >>>

The aim of the Social Science Staff Network is to offer opportunity for peers to share resources, exchange ideas, connect across campus, and gain a broader understanding of the Social Sciences Division, and of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences.

Our monthly meetings provide an opportunity for staff in the division to meet one another, learn about the university beyond their own departments, learn about resources and opportunities available to them, and share best practices. The group meets 12-1:30pm the third Wednesday of each month during the academic year (September through May). Please check the calendar for individual meeting locations and agendas.

If you are a staff member in the Division of Social Science in grade 51 to 54, and would like to be added to the email list or would like to be involved in the Planning and Advisory Committee, please contact Jessica Gauchel,
