Campus Community Message - President Mike Mahon

Dear Campus Community,

As we head into Easter weekend, I want to update everyone on the status of the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) and the many staff and faculty members who contributed to its work over the last few weeks.

Now that the majority of the University’s business and academic processes have shifted to remote delivery, the EOC will be winding down its operation and the responsibilities of administering directives related to the COVID-19 situation will be shifting back to individual departments.

I want to thank sincerely all those who devoted some very long hours to making the EOC run throughout this unprecedented situation, and specifically Doug Mackie and Dr. Michelle Helstein, who acted as our EOC directors. The professionalism shown by everyone in the EOC helped us navigate through a very trying situation and created the framework upon which our successful transition to remote delivery could take place.

As this is a continually changing situation, the EOC is not being disbanded, but rather put on hold with members primarily returning to their normal positions. The co-directors will continue to support campus leaders in realizing ongoing objectives. Should the need arise, the EOC could be quickly mobilized once again.


Mike Mahon, PhD
President and Vice-Chancellor
