Message from Joanne Cuthbertson, Chancellor of the University of Calgary
I write today to share exciting news about the search for the University of Calgary’s 12th Chancellor.
This morning, the University of Calgary Senate voted to approve Alberta community builder Jim Dinning as the next Chancellor of the University of Calgary, effective July 1.
When it comes to serving our community, there are few people as passionate and accomplished as Jim Dinning. Jim’s experience, the value he places on post-secondary education, and his strong ties to the corporate, government and non-profit sectors make him an outstanding choice for Chancellor. I believe he will leave his mark on the bold future that lies ahead for the University of Calgary.
I would like to thank the members of the Joint Committee for Chancellor Selection for their commitment and dedication to the process of finding my successor.
It is an exciting time of growth and opportunity for the University of Calgary. I am honored to have been Chancellor of this great university for the last four years. As a graduate of the University of Calgary, it has been particularly meaningful. My passion and commitment for this university will continue and I look forward to staying connected and cheering for your every success under the leadership of our new president Elizabeth Cannon, Chancellor Dinning, the Board of Governors and the rest of the university leadership.
Please join me in congratulating Mr. Dinning on his new role and welcoming him to the University of Calgary community.
Chancellor, University of Calgary
