Office of the Principal and Vice-Chancellor

Hello from the Principal

Since becoming Principal and Vice-Chancellor of Queen's in July 2019, I have 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 have 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.

This is an exciting time for Queen's and I look forward to continuing our conversation and engaging with all of you as we build our future together.
