Dean of science Chris Houser will begin an appointment Sept. 1 as interim vice-president, research and innovation.
Wen Teoh, director of the Entrepreneurship Practice & Innovation Centre (EPICente), and learning specialist Dave Cormier of the Office of Open Learning were among the employees of Ontario universities honoured Friday by Jill Dunlop, provincial minister of colleges and universities.
The two received Minister of Colleges and Universities’ Awards of Excellence, which Dunlop said highlight the “incredible work” being done by Ontario’s faculty, staff, and graduate students.
