Faculty Highlights

Research with Heart

For some, research is an exercise in theory. For others, like Dr. Kirsten Madsen, it is a calling — and a powerful way to create real change in real people and their communities.

2016 Ig Nobel Peace Prize

Nathaniel Barr, a professor of Creativity and Creative Thinking in Sheridan’s Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, has won the 2016 Ig Nobel Peace Prize.
