Rebecca Luce-Kapler — Dean, Faculty of Education

The university recently announced the appointment of Rebecca Luce-Kapler as dean of the Faculty of Education for a five-year term effective July 1, 2015.

Dr. Luce-Kapler is currently associate dean of graduate studies and research in the Faculty of Education, in which role she has led several important initiatives including the development and implementation of the online Professional Master of Education program. She also served as interim dean during the first half of 2014.

After being awarded her doctorate by the University of Alberta, Dr. Luce-Kapler came to Queen’s in 1997 as a language and literacy scholar. During her time at Queen’s, she has taught secondary English methods courses and developed writing courses for both BEd and graduate students. She has also taught English as an elementary/secondary school teacher in Alberta, and holds a permanent teaching certificate from that province, in addition to which she is a member of the Ontario College of Teachers.

Her research interests focus on the integral role of literary practices, particularly writing, in the development of human consciousness and identity. This work has contributed to understanding the normative power of cultural forms and the importance of interpretive reading and writing practices for generative learning and teaching.

Dr. Luce-Kapler is also a poet with a number of literary publications, including a poetry collection, The gardens where she dreams.

The university and Faculty of Education would like to thank outgoing dean Stephen Elliott for the many contributions he has made to Queen’s and for his valuable leadership of the faculty. Dr. Elliott was appointed dean in 2010.

During his four years as director of the Monieson Centre, Queen’s has raised its profile as an important contributor to the debates on national health policy reform through the Queen’s Health Policy Change Conference Series, related white papers and forthcoming book.

Since joining QSB in 2007, Dr. Carson has also served as director of the Queen’s MBA program. Before coming to Queen’s, he was dean of the School of Business and Economics, and professor of business policy, at Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, Ontario, and prior to that, dean of the Sobey School of Business, and professor of management, at Saint Mary’s University, Halifax, Nova Scotia. He is also a past chair of the Canadian Federation of Business School Deans.

His scholarly research has appeared in such journals as Journal of Business Ethics, Journal of Business Ethics Education, Business and Society Review, and Business and Professional Ethics Journal. Dr. Carson also publishes and is a frequent speaker on health-care strategy, not-for-profit governance, corporate social responsibility and business ethics.

Dr. Carson’s career has combined academe with both business and government service. While on leave from Wilfrid Laurier, he was chief executive officer of the Ontario Government’s Privatization Secretariat. In business, Dr. Carson was vice-president and head of corporate finance for CIBC in Toronto.

Dr. Carson is currently chair of the board of Kingston General Hospital, past chair of the Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce and past vice-chair of the Halifax International Airport Authority. In addition, he is a former member of the board of directors of The Economical Insurance Group, Comerica Bank Canada, the Canadian Bond Rating Service, Waterloo North Hydro and many other private and public sector organizations.
