Simon Fraser University

Simon Fraser University (SFU) is consistently ranked among the top comprehensive universities in Canada. Located on the unceded and unsurrendered territories of the Coast Salish peoples, SFU offers classes on three urban campuses across greater Vancouver (Burnaby, Downtown Vancouver, and Surrey). By recognizing the Unceded Traditional Coast Salish territories, we aspire to create a space for reconciliation through dialogue and decolonizing practices. Vancouver is a scenic waterfront city located minutes from the mountains and a wide range of outdoor activities. It has a reputation as a clean, safe, multicultural and ethnically diverse city that is repeatedly ranked as one of the very top cities in the world in which to live and work.

SFU is an institution whose strength is based on our shared commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Diversity is an underlying principle of our Strategic Vision, which pledges SFU to “foster a culture of inclusion and mutual respect, celebrating the diversity reflected among its students, faculty, staff, and our community.” 

The Department of Psychology at SFU has a positive, collegial atmosphere and is strongly supportive of faculty members’ diverse backgrounds, strengths, interests, and career progress. Our department is committed to ethical practice, equity, social justice and diversity.
