New regents appointed
Four new appointments have been made to Memorial’s Board of Regents.
Education Minister Joan Burke made the announcement on Dec. 11.
Mary Cormier of Corner Brook, Michelle Daye of Grand Falls-Windsor, Noreen Greene-Fraize of St. John’s and Debbie Singleton of Happy Valley-Goose Bay have joined the Board of Regents effective immediately.
In a news release, Minister Burke said she was pleased to have the four “dedicated and talented women join Memorial’s Board of Regents.
“They represent the various regions of our province and will complement the current board members in their work to continue to build this great institution. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the outgoing members of the board for their time, energy and dedication during their period of service. These are volunteer positions and I acknowledge and appreciate the contributions made by all individuals who take on this role.”
The Board of Regents is responsible for the management, administration and affairs of Memorial. It comprises a diverse group of individuals representing business, social and educational sectors, as well as students.
“One of this province’s greatest assets is Memorial University – the largest university in Atlantic Canada,” Minister Burke said in her release.
“Working in partnership with the Board of Regents, our government continues to make innovative and strategic investments that are helping MUN flourish. I would like to welcome these newest members to the board and have every confidence they will make an invaluable contribution to the work of the board and to the university overall.”
