Patrick Rothfuss (2007) in his novel, The Name of the Wind, uses the phrase “excellence is excellence’s only companion.” My vision for the Faculty extends this thought, both conceptually and practically. If there is a simple way to describe the Faculty of Management past tied to my vision for its future it is this: “continue excellence, leverage our uniqueness, and realize new”
The Faculty of Management has become an established professional Faculty that produces quality research, has a focus on the student experience, and aspires to stand out nationally and internationally.
This is an exciting time to re-join the Faculty of Management as Dean. The School qua Faculty of Management celebrates 35 years in Lethbridge and 20 years in Calgary and Edmonton in 2016, while the University of Lethbridge celebrates its 50th Anniversary in 2017.
I truly look forward to celebrating our past while working with faculty, staff, students, alumni, and communities as we advance a shared vision that establishes the U of L Faculty of Management as a leader in Management education and research.
