Dean Philpott's Blog: What we can accomplish together in the years ahead through discovery, harmony & equity

To become Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) at Queen’s University is one of the greatest honours of my life. Being the first woman to hold this position is especially meaningful.

Nursing student bridges the gap between Deaf and hearing culture

When Sarah Corbeil, a third-year political science student, arrived at Queen’s in 2018, she found very little in the way of American Sign Language (ASL) resources on campus. She knew this had to change. Although Sarah is a hearing person, she first became interested in learning ASL after travelling with her friend who is Hard of Hearing.
