Provost Makes Headlines
September 11, 2012 - In the News
A column by Maureen Mancuso, provost and vice-president (academic), appears in the latest issue of University Affairs, which was published today.
Mancuso will be a regular columnist for the publication this academic year, writing opinion pieces about issues affecting higher education. University Affairs is published by the Association of Universities and Colleges in Canada.
Her first column looks at why academics enter administration and the opportunities and challenges of serving in such roles.
Mancuso was appointed provost in 2004 and was the first woman at U of G to hold the position. She was reappointed in 2009. She served as chair of the Department of Political Science from 1996 to 2000 and was appointed associate vice-president (academic) in 2000.
She holds a prestigious 3M National Teaching Fellowship, considered Canada’s top teaching honour; won a U of G teaching award from the former College of Social Science in 1996; and has twice been named among Guelph’s most popular professors in Maclean’s magazine.
