Congratulations to Sociology PhD graduate Matthew Sanscartier, who has accepted a position as a Faculty Instructor at the University of Manitoba, where he teaches primarily Introductory Sociology. Matthew recently received the University of Manitoba Arts Teaching Excellence Award for his work in this area as a sessional instructor.

Dr. Sanscartier also works as a Data Analyst for the Downtown Community Safety Partnership, which is a non-profit organization taking an alternative approach to community support and well-being in Winnipeg’s downtown area. This involves activities like providing folks with resources they need, meeting individuals where they’re at, and connecting them with both immediate and long-term services, such as housing and addictions intervention/counseling.
