SSHRC Leaders

SSHRC Leaders are senior university administrators appointed by their university presidents to serve as points of contact between SSHRC and their respective universities.

SSHRC Leaders provide a stable, ongoing channel of communication between their institutions and SSHRC. They relay information to their colleagues on new policy and program developments, and they gather information and ideas from the university community that feed into the development of SSHRC policies and programs.

SSHRC Leaders and SSHRC managers meet periodically, both in person and by teleconference.

For more information about SSHRC Leaders, contact: leaders@sshrc-crsh.gc.ca
