Commemorating two terms as the university’s highest officer, David Dodge’s chancellor portrait was unveiled this weekend at the University Council dinner. Following a tradition that dates back to the 1800s, Dr. Dodge’s portrait, painted by artist Daniel Hughes, will be hung in the Peter Lougheed Room of Richardson Hall. His portrait joins the likes of Sirs Sandford Fleming and Robert Borden.

“It’s been a great honour to serve as chancellor these past six years” Dr. Dodge says. “I’ve had the opportunity to work with many wonderful people during my time here and they will all be missed.”  

Though he has retired from his position as chancellor, Dr. Dodge was appointed as chancellor emeritus by University Council. The honorary position recognizes the exceptional job Dr. Dodge performed during his terms as chancellor.

Chancellor Emeritus Dodge is also being honored with an annual lecture. The Queen’s School of Business, Queen’s Economics Department and Queen’s School of Policy Studies lecture will now be named The Chancellor David Dodge Lecture.

Dr. Dodge will be succeeded as chancellor by Jim Leech, whose installation will take place on Nov. 18.
