Welcome to the Dean’s Podcast – the podcast about issues shaping graduate studies in Canada.
In this episode, host Carolyn Watters, Dalhousie University dean of graduate studies, and 2009 Canadian Association of Graduate Studies president, talks to Brian Campbell, dean of graduate studies at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology. It’s been almost seven years since UOIT officially opened, and Dr. Campbell has had the unique experience of being the first dean of graduate studies at a brand new university. Listen as he offers advice to future deans about starting a graduate program from scratch. (Running time: 17:44 mins).
