Vice-Provost for Guelph-Humber Reappointed
March 22, 2010 - Campus Bulletin
Prof. John Walsh has been appointed to a second five-year term as vice-provost for the University of Guelph-Humber. The announcement was made today by Maureen Mancuso, the University of Guelph's provost and vice-president (academic), and Michael Hatton, vice-president (academic) at the Humber College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning.
Walsh will oversee academic and administrative endeavours for Guelph-Humber.
“John has done an outstanding job in moving the University of Guelph-Humber forward,” Hatton said. “Under his leadership, it has become an institution of choice for students from the GTA and beyond.”
Mancuso added: “This unique partnership has become a model for education in Ontario. John has helped us succeed in expanding student opportunity by enabling students to earn a university honours degree and a college diploma in four years of study.”
The only one of its kind, Guelph-Humber is a joint initiative between the two partnering schools. It first began offering classes in the fall of 2002, taught by faculty from both institutions. In 2004, the university moved to its own $45-million state-of-the-art building on the Humber campus.
"I am absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to serve a second term as vice-provost,” Walsh said. “The past several years have seen our applicants increase in number and quality and our graduates build successful careers. I look forward to continuing to work with our innovative and energetic faculty, staff and students here at University of Guelph-Humber."
