Associate VP David Veres to retire after 22 years at Niagara College


David Veres, associate vice-president of Academic and Learner Services, will be retiring at the end of August after 22 years at Niagara College.

A message from Steve Hudson, VP Academic and Learner Services:

It is with the very best wishes but simultaneously considerable regret that I am announcing that David Veres has chosen to retire from Niagara College effective August 31, 2017.

David has been at Niagara College 22 years and has held a wide variety of roles. He started as a part-time then sessional faculty member, before becoming a full-time professor in the Event Management program. David went on to become an academic chair, prior to becoming a dean and then associate vice-president Academic and Learner Services. He was in a number of schools and has been instrumental in many of the College’s successes over the past years, including the creator of the Many Hands project, the inaugural dean of Community and Health Studies and a key force behind many community integration activities.

David has been an invaluable member of the Academic and Learner Services team, taking on key leadership roles both as a dean and as associate vice-president on the executive team. I want to thank him for his exceptional contributions to our students as well as the growth of the College over the past years.

David chose to defer the announcement until after convocation and a much deserved holiday. There will be a more formal opportunity in late August to celebrate his contributions and to wish him well.  Please join me in thanking David for his leadership and service.
