SOFAM Celebrates John Kissicks Tenure as Director

Posted on Thursday, April 17th, 2014

SOFAM's semester end celebration was a little bitter sweet this year, as we bid a fond farewell to our long serving Director John Kissick. 
 
Director since 2003, John’s innovative style of leadership has transitioned the School into the new millennium, and brought national and international recognition to its programs.
 
Continuing to serve as a faculty member in Studio Art, John's experience and advice will be an invaluable asset to our new Director Sally Hickson, who takes the reigns this July.
 
SOFAM thanks John for his excellent service, and wishes him the best in his new found freedom, as he takes up the new mantra “Not My Problem”!
 
 
LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
