It is a pleasure to welcome you, the Class of 2022 and 2023, to the Faculty of Arts and Science.
My name is
and I am the Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Science. The Faculty of Arts and Science is the largest faculty at Queen's and includes 27 departments and several programs. We are more than half of the University. You can feel our presence everywhere on campus. My role as Dean is the chief academic officer of the Faculty. Among other things, I am responsible for seeing that you get the best education. We have hundreds of the best faculty and staff in the world dedicated to assisting you with this goal.
I am looking forward to meeting as many students as I possibly can. If you see me when you are crossing the campus, please feel free to come up and introduce yourself.
The next four to five years give you a fantastic opportunity to become more than you are today. Resolve to become more educated, more equity and diversity focused, more knowledgeable, more skilled, more determined, stronger, braver, wiser. More the kind of person you have always aspired to be.
You are beginning an exciting chapter of your lives. Enjoy!
Dr. Barbara Crow
Dean, Faculty of Arts and Science
