Values, Vision, and Mission

Expandable List

Our work is grounded in principles of equity, diversity and inclusion. We believe in rigorous and integral scientific inquiry and the complementarity of fundamental and applied research.

We strive to be leaders in language science who achieve excellence through a plurality of innovative approaches to fundamental, experimental and applied research.

We provide a collaborative intellectual environment for all levels of researchers, ranging from undergraduate trainees to established scholars, who contribute a unique combination of skills in their language science research. Our centre fosters a full-cycle reciprocal approach, where fundamental research both informs applied research, and is grounded in the knowledge generated from the applied research. This integrated approach maximizes the impact of our research on a diverse scientific community and on the broader society.
