About Research

StFX Strategic Plan for Research and Creative Works (2019-2025)

StFX has an established tradition of research and creative works across all areas of the University’s academic reach, covering a range of disciplinary and inter-disciplinary fields in the humanities and social sciences, natural, physical, and engineering sciences, management sciences, and health sciences, as well as in areas such as fine arts, music, and drama.  In May 2019, Senate approved a new five-year Strategic Plan for Research and Creative Works outlining key objectives and actions that aim to increase the capacity for research and creative success at StFX.  

StFX's Commitment to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Research

StFX is a signatory to the Dimensions initiative, which invites universities across Canada to take part in a post-secondary transformation to increase equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) and help drive deeper cultural change within the research ecosystem. The program addresses obstacles faced by, but not limited to, women, Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities, members of visible minority/racialized groups, and members of LGBTQ2+ communities. It provides public recognition for institutions committed to achieving increased EDI.  Click here to view StFX's signed copy of the Dimensions Charter which commits our University to adopting eight core principles throughout our practices and culture to achieve greater equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI).   Click here to read additional information and reporting related to StFX plans for greater equity, diversity and inclusion in research.  Click here to read the StFX Canada Research Chairs Plan for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.
