Meet Principal Deane

Office of the Principal and Vice-Chancellor

Since becoming Principal and Vice-Chancellor of Queen's University in July 2019, Patrick Deane has engaged the university community in a conversation about who we are, how we operate and more importantly, what Queen's wants to be. These conversations helped establish a new strategy upon which to build Queen's as the university for the future, whose people solve the world's most significant and urgent challenges.
