I would like to take this opportunity to update you on a few organizational changes.
I’m pleased to announce that Pam Skinner, our new vice president, corporate services starts her new role at Niagara College on April 1. In my last communique on organizational changes I announced that Sean Kennedy our vice president, student and external relations was seconded full time to international activities and he would remain in this role until the end of March 2015. Given the increased international enrolment and opportunities, I have asked Sean to stay on in this role until the end of August 2015. This will give us more opportunity to assess our organizational requirements in the whole field of international recruitment and contracts.
Rick Anderson has kindly agreed to continue in his role as acting vice president, student affairs until August 31, 2015 and Sheryl Johns will take over the position of acting director – student services. As well, Jennifer Babin has agreed to take on the acting manager of student services role until the end of August 2015. At this time, I would like to thank Brigitte Chiki who has graciously helped us out over the past few months; her advice and assistance has been invaluable.
