Centre for Academic Leadership closes
Posted on May 28, 2013
After close to one and a half years in operation, the Centre for Academic Leadership is closing its doors but its programs and workshops will continue under the leadership of the Office of the Provost.
“During the budget process, I advised the academic sector that I would be carefully reviewing the programs and priorities within the Office of the Provost,” explains Lisa Ostiguy, interim provost and vice-president, academic affairs. “This was part of our contribution to examining how we could be more efficient and streamline the academic sector.”
As a result of a careful review of priorities, the decision was made to close the centre. Ostiguy stressed that the programs, including professional development workshops and peer-mentoring, will continue to be offered under the Office of the Provost.
