University reappoints Boudreau

The University of Lethbridge has reappointed Dr. Robert Boudreau to a second five-year term as the University's Vice-Provost & Associate Vice-President (Academic). The Board of Governors, as well as the review committee struck to make a recommendation to the Board, unanimously supported Boudreau's reappointment.

"Dr. Boudreau has been instrumental in ensuring the success of several initiatives over the past five years," says University of Lethbridge Provost Dr. Andrew Hakin. "For example, Bob was instrumental in ensuring a smooth transition for our academic programmes as we relocated our Calgary Campus to the Bow Valley College site and our Edmonton Campus to Concordia University College of Alberta.

In addition to overseeing the transition of the northern campuses, Boudreau also plays a leadership role at the U of L by leading in key strategic areas including academic quality assurance and Campus Alberta partnerships. As well, he successfully advocated to the Alberta government the need to invest in mental health supports for students on campus.

Over the last 30 years, Boudreau has held a variety of academic positions including Professor, Assistant Dean, Director, Honorary Visiting Research Fellow, Acting Dean of Graduate Studies, Assistant Vice-President (Academic), and Vice Provost & Associate Vice-President (Academic).

Specializing his research in occupational burnout, his current resume lists 137 presentations, articles, books, book chapters and interviews that he has produced over the last three decades plus. He has personally collected burnout survey data from workers in Belarus, Canada, Japan, New Zealand and Australia.
