I am very pleased to announce that, on the recommendation of Interim President Martha Piper, the Board of Governors has approved the extension of appointment of Dr. John Innes as Dean of the Faculty of Forestry for a second term, commencing July 1, 2016, until June 30, 2021. Under Dr. Innes’ leadership, the Faculty has made outstanding achievements in student learning, which saw, for example, the creation of a new undergraduate program in Urban Forestry and three new professional Master’s programs in Sustainable Forest Management, International Forestry, and Geomatics and Environmental Management; and more than a tripling of the number of co-op placements.
