Celebrating our newest PhDs

A doctoral degree is the ultimate culmination of hard work and dedication. After countless hours attending seminars and conducting research, TA'ing or teaching courses and preparing a dissertation, our doctoral students are becoming doctoral graduates.

Congratulations to Randy Allen Harris, professor in the Department of English Language and Literature, who has been named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada (RSC). Dr. Harris is part of a cohort of distinguished Canadians who have made remarkable contributions in the arts, the humanities and the sciences, as well as in Canadian public life.
