Time Is Flying By
Wow, how time flies. I am in absolute awe that a month has passed since I started my new job as VP Student Affairs. I am in love with this position! Through this position I was fortunate enough to get to meet and have lunch with the incoming President, Illene Busch-Vishniac. She is amazing and I am looking forward to working with her in the future. I also have been able to connect with many of the upper administrators for the University like the Registrar, Secretary of the University, Vice Provosts, etc. It’s really cool meeting people with so much knowledge about the University. We had lunch with Bob Ferguson of Campus Safety a few days ago, he drove us to Boffins in Innovation Place taking a route that I’d never even imagined. Did you know we have horses on campus?! I pride myself on my extensive knowledge of the University, but I am humbled to meet so many people who know so much more than I likely ever will. It’s also good to go to meetings with people who are somewhat disconnected from the student experience, who recognize that, and to bring a student voice to that subject.
I am having a lot of fun here with the staff. I’m enjoying getting to know everyone better, and love the surprise staff treats every once in a while. I am also unbelievably excited to venture to Montreal for a client stakeholder meeting with Studentcare (our student healthcare provider) with the rest of the Exec, though we’ll all only be there for one evening together. It should be fun, I love Montreal and Ru has never been, so be excited to hear her stories.
As always please don’t hesitate to contact me! I look forward to hearing from you.
