John Sheriff, Faculty, Mathematics & Computer Science

I have been at the University of Lethbridge for eight years in the department of Mathematics and Statistics. I am working on two elements in assisting in the creation of the People Plan. The first element is to provide for enhancement of systems for mental, emotional and physical health. The second element is the provision of people-centred systems and opportunities for the voicing of concerns and suggestions, collaboration and communication.

I am excited by the opportunity to be part of the People Plan because I believe the People Plan is an important component to ensure that the University continues to foster a sense of community and an environment of collegiality, respect and support among those individuals it employs.

Since moving to Lethbridge, I have fallen in with a bit of a suspect group of people and now find myself regularly running marathons and ultra-marathons.
