All faculty selected to teach at the BISC are fully-qualified, experienced in their subject areas, and active researchers. 

Research Engagement 

Faculty research supports the vibrant teaching and learning that has come to define the BISC. Over 50% of faculty are currently engaged in writing chapters for edited volumes or journal article-length pieces. Nearly 40% are engaged in long-term projects that will result in a published book or monograph.

Selection and Accreditation 

The BISC's rigorous faculty selection process is conducted by senior personnel and faculty from both Queen's University (Canada) and the BISC. All faculty appointments are made and ratified by Queen's University under the auspices of the Senate and all courses taught by faculty at the BISC are fully accredited by Queen's University.

Selection of faculty is paramount in maximizing:

  • High academic quality
  • An international setting
  • Real-world examples to enhance the curriculum
