GSL expansion to a bi-campus institute between uOttawa and YorkU

The Global Strategy Lab is pleased to share the exciting news that GSL Director Steven Hoffman will be moving to York University as of July 1, 2017. He will be a Full Professor cross-appointed to the School of Health Policy & Management and Osgoode Hall Law School. YorkU will be nominating Steven for a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair, and he will be helping the University to build its new Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research. This work of the Institute is supported by a $20M endowment and will be directed by Dr. James Orbinski. Steven will remain the Scientific Director of CIHR's Institute of Population & Public Health, and GSL will expand to become a bi-campus institution with Associate Director Patrick Fafard maintaining GSL's presence at uOttawa in the Faculty of Social Sciences.

This is an exciting opportunity for both GSL and Steven, and we are looking forward to the new opportunities created by his appointment.
