Waterloo ranked #1 again for Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council grants

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Recognizing Canadian research leadership, Maclean’s magazine's 2011 University Rankings (Nov. 2011) has once again ranked Waterloo #1 among Canadian comprehensive universities for Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) funding success.

"We ranked number one overall among the comprehensive universities -- same as last year," commented Angela Roorda, Arts' Research Development Officer. "The more exciting news, though, is that Waterloo researchers are doing very well when compared against all Canadian universities (not only the comprehensives).  If you drill down into the raw numbers Maclean’s provides, it shows we’ve moved up in both the “size of grant per full-time faculty” score (we’re now #3, last year we were #4) and in the “number of grants per 100 full-time faculty” score (we’re #5, and last year we were #7)."

While these numbers represent the University of Waterloo as a whole (SSHRC grants are also won by reseachers in Environment, Engineering and Applied Health Sciences) Arts faculty members are among the country’s most successful research grant winners in social science and humanities fields.
