Concordia University of Edmonton to start the new year with new president
Concordia University of Edmonton’s new president, Dr. Tim Loreman, will be starting his term on January 1, 2017, as Dr. Gerald S. Krispin has chosen to complete his tenure as CUE’s current president at the end of this year.
Dr. Krispin has been with Concordia University of Edmonton (CUE) for 30 years, the last 10 of which have been as president. His vision, passion and leadership has propelled the institution to its current standing within the university community and within the city as Edmonton’s university. Dr. Krispin plans to remain active and continue to endorse and support CUE in the future.
Dr. Tim Loreman, a nationally and internationally renowned and award-winning academic and researcher, is thrilled to be starting his new duties in the new year.
“I have seen our university grow spectacularly over the years. We have always ensured our students are placed at the centre of all that we do, and, through our commitment to preparing them for a successful future, the university is developing into a more robust, inclusive and scholarly community,” said Dr. Loreman. “I’m proud of what has become one of Canada’s best smaller universities and am honoured to have been chosen to lead and advance it further.”
Concordia University of Edmonton is nestled within the picturesque Highlands neighbourhood overlooking the North Saskatchewan River Valley. It offers over 45 majors and minors in the fields of arts, science, and management, as well as graduate certificates and diplomas, after-degree programs in Education and Public Health, and master’s degrees.
