The originator of on-campus, blended and online courses, as well as playing an advisory role in the creation of the new Indigenous Studies Minor, Mr. Lovelace is the founding manager for the Four Directions Aboriginal Student Centre and, with others, an initiator of the Annual Aboriginal Studies Symposium at Queen’s.

'Just ask Aphra'

'Just ask Aphra'

For first-year students at the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, if they ever have a question or need someone to talk to, they know they can always turn to Aphra Rogers.

While she is not the only person providing support for engineering students, she is the touchstone for new students, a kind of hub of information and connections.

It makes for a busy schedule, but Ms. Rogers revels in her role.
