Signature Research Areas

The University of Saskatchewan's "signature areas" all impact sustainability. They are:

Aboriginal Peoples: Engagement and Scholarship

By 2050, half of Saskatchewan's population may be of Aboriginal ancestry, a demographic shift that creates challenge and opportunity. Our shared journey will help advance Indigenous and non-Indigenous ways of knowing and prepare a new generation of Aboriginal youth for the global knowledge economy.

Agriculture: Food and Bioproducts for a Sustainable Future

Projections show that food production must double by 2050 to feed the world's growing population. We are working to strengthen Saskatchewan's agricultural leadership with new science, technology and policies to help feed a hungry world adequately, safely and sustainably.

Energy and Mineral Resources: Technology and Public Policy for a Sustainable Environment

Demand for energy and natural resources is starting to outpace supply. Clean energy solutions, sustainable resource development and sound policy development are vital to meet future demand while conserving ecosystems and sharing the benefits with all.

One Health: Solutions at the Animal-Human-Environment Interface

Health for all species is inextricably linked to challenges such as emerging diseases, water and food safety, and environmental degradation. We are working to develop scientific, public health and policy approaches that integrate human, animal and ecosystem health.

Synchrotron Sciences: Innovation in Health, Environment and Advanced Technologies

With Canada's only synchrotron and the largest number of synchrotron users of any university in Canada, we are harnessing powerful imaging and analytical techniques to solve challenges in health, environment, materials science and other areas of global social and economic importance.

Water Security: Stewardship of the World's Freshwater Resources

One in six people - 1.4 billion - live in water-stressed areas. Climate change, pollution and overuse are putting severe strain on quality and quantity of fresh water for drinking, sanitation and food production. We are developing new interdisciplinary science, technology and policy to address these urgent issues.

More information on the university's "signature areas" can be found at the website of the Vice-President Research.

School of Environment and Sustainability

The School of Environment and Sustainability (SENS) seeks to bridge multiple disciplines across the natural, physical, social sciences, as well as the humanities and engineering to address the most challenging environmental and sustainability issues we face. Having been established in 2007 with over 100 alumni, our students benefit from innovative, forward-thinking mentorship of interdisciplinary researchers and practitioners as they are guided through exploratory exercises that emphasize critical thinking and alternative ways of knowing.

Interdisciplinary research at the School of Environment and Sustainability (SENS) seeks to integrate different disciplines when approaching, investigating and/or identifying potential solutions to the challenging environmental and sustainability problems we face. The premise is that problems emerge from a variety of causes, and we need to embrace that complexity with the relevant disciplines to address them.
