Many thanks to Professor Grant Henderson who took on the role of Acting Chair for the 2016 calendar year while Professor Russ Pysklywec was on leave. Grant lead the department through an exciting year, celebrating the achievements of colleagues, steering infrastructure projects including the final stages of the Diamond Environmental Research Lab, the seminar room refurbishing, and the upgrading of classroom 1062 to a technology based teaching room along with the many administrative tasks that come with the office of a Chair.
Grant will resume his role as Associate Chair, Undergraduate Studies. Thanks are offered to Professor Uli Wortmann who stepped into that role for the year with enthusiasm.
We all look forward to a successful new year!
