The Gregg Centre


The Gregg Centre for the Study of War and Society (The Gregg Centre) is an interdisciplinary research centre based in the Faculty of Arts and connected across the University of New Brunswick.

The Gregg Centre mission is to study war as a complex social phenomenon to understand its cause, course, and consequence for Canada and the world. Research on modern armed conflict and security forces drives undergraduate and graduate teaching at UNB, community engagement, as well as professional development support for educators and Canadian Armed Forces members.

Our mission builds on five decades of practice in the study of modern conflict at UNB in partnership with the Canadian Army Combat Training Centre at Base Gagetown. We strive to make UNB campuses welcoming and supportive for Canadian Armed Forces members and veterans, both Regular Force and Reserve, who study here.

We recognize that war increasingly targets civilian populations and disproportionately impacts People of Colour, 2SLGBTQ+, and other minorities around the world. Our research seeks to give a voice to those often left voiceless.

In our spaces, we actively strive to create a safe environment for our students and partners to make them feel valued for their unique identity, abilities, sexual orientation, ethnicity, faith, and gender. Everyone is welcome and supported in their development at all stages in their journey at the Gregg Centre. In our growth, we aspire to further diversifying our team through hiring and by developing partnerships.
