Office of the dean for research September 26, 2022 Newsletter 30

Message from the Dean

Proud of the progress made over the past year (FRQSC, adoption of the research integrity policy and revision of the Senate ethics policy, consolidation of the Research and Valorization Office [RVO], among others), the Dean of Research has ambitious plans for 2022–2023 and is embarking with his team on several projects: the compliance of the RMC Saint-Jean with the Loi sur la liberté académique dans le milieu universitaire, the implementation of the Comité de la recherche et des études supérieures with which he wishes to devise the Strategic Plan for Research, the development of operations and services offered by the RVO, the development of a web presence for research conducted at RMC Saint-Jean, and the promotion and facilitation of research activities within our walls, including those conducted under the CRITIC banner.

The table is set for a busy and exciting year.


The Dean of Research invites you to attend the Leadersphere 2022 – Analyse, Decide, Act: Responding to Contemporary Security Challenges conference to be held on October 4, 2022, at RMC Saint-Jean. The conference is organized by our professors Marina Sharpe and Élisabeth Vallet.


Bruno Charbonneau is now one of the seven members of the FRQSC-funded Équipe de recherche sur la politique internationale des conflits civils (ÉPICC), at the Université de Montréal under the direction of Professor Théodore McLauchlin.
