It is an honour for me to continue to be a part of it and to be able to continue to advocate on behalf of our students, faculty and staff as we shape our university’s education, creativity, innovation and community engagement in the years to come. I want to thank the Board of Governors for their support and for their efforts to help our university be one that creates pride for a lifetime.” said Dr. Wildeman.

Under Dr. Wildermans first term the university has seen the creation of a downtown campus, the construction of the Ed Lumley Centre for Engineering Innovation, construction of the new integrated Innovation Centre and Parking Structure as well as several improvements to the campus grounds and buildings.
