University Research Excellence Chairs

In the UPEI Strategic Research Plan (2023–2028): Roadmap to Research Excellence, one of the thematic goals is to expand research capacity by developing new resources that increase the number of research chair positions at the University. UPEI’s reputation and research profile, nationally and internationally, are largely determined by the scholarly accomplishments of its professors.

The designation of “University Research Excellence Chair” (UREC) recognizes the exceptional research achievements of faculty members. Selected chairholders are outstanding researchers, either early career researchers who are emerging scholars, or already established as leaders in their respective field of research.
