On behalf of all the staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the department of Global Sustainable Development!

We are a multifaceted department, passionate about investigating the most pressing issues facing our world today, and eager to engage in intellectual discussions with our students. We are delighted that you will be joining us: you will be part of an international group of enthusiastic, critical, and committed students and academics.

I'm the Director of Student Experience and I look forward to meeting you in person in September during Welcome Week.
