Saucier, Gregory moving on
Two University of Lethbridge faculty members are moving on to positions at other Canadian universities in the spring.
In addition to his more than four-year tenure at the U of L, Gregory is the former dean of the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Manitoba. His clinical background is community health nursing and his research interests include suffering/palliative care, Aboriginal health issues and qualitative research methodology.
“David has a great opportunity to build a new Faculty of Nursing in Regina, and we wish him the very best in this endeavour,” says Dr. Chris Hosgood, dean of the U of L’s Faculty of Health Sciences. “David will be remembered here particularly for his work with our growing graduate studies program, and for providing help and encouragement to our graduate students.”
As well, Dr. Deborah Saucier, professor and Chair, Department of Neuroscience, will be leaving the University after accepting the position of Dean of Science at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT).
Saucier has been at the University since 2006, joining the U of L as a Canada Research Chair and associate professor. She then progressed to the position of professor and then Chair of the department in 2009. Her appointment at UOIT begins July 1, 2011.
“On behalf of her many colleagues on campus, I would like to congratulate Dr. Saucier on her prospective appointment and wish her the best for her family and her future career in this new role,” says Dr. Chris Nicol, dean of the Faculty of Arts and Science.
Nicol says Saucier has been an outstanding colleague since joining the University.
“In addition to a prodigious record of achievement as a scholar and teacher, she also has distinguished herself with recent service to the Faculty Association as Chair of the Academic Welfare Committee. She will be greatly missed on our campus.”
Saucier spent three years as a faculty member in Psychology at the University of Regina and then in 1999 she accepted a position at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon where she was an associate professor of Psychology.
