Welcome to Western
It is a tremendous honour and privilege to help lead an academic community that ranks among Canada’s best and aspires to increase its impact on a global scale. Since joining Western in 2009 as the Dean of Engineering, I have marveled at the range and depth of expertise that exists among our faculty, the enthusiasm and dedication of our staff, and the intelligence and potential of our students.
Since assuming the role of Provost in August 2018, I provide senior executive oversight of all academic units, institutional planning and budgeting, academic quality assurance, faculty relations, student recruitment and registration, the campus library system, international relations, and information technology services. For a more complete picture of the Provost’s portfolio, please see the organizational chart at http://provost.uwo.ca/provost/org_chart.html.
I invite you to explore my website—including a video outlining some key priorities I see on the horizon for the university—to familiarize yourself with all we do and aspire to achieve at Western.
