“I will forever be an advocate for polytechnic education,
and a champion for NAIT.”
As I retire in December, I reflect back at my time at NAIT – an experience that has been nothing short of amazing. Over the past 9 years, we’ve achieved many great things together. And we’ve grown as an institution.
Our campus has been transformed.
In 2016, we opened the Centre for Applied Technology – a facility that forever changed learning at NAIT. Then, in 2018, we opened one of North America’s largest innovation spaces, the Productivity and Innovation Centre. And we have built and refurbished many more spaces. Ours are now among the best polytechnic facilities anywhere.
Together, we have built a stronger future for NAIT and Alberta.
I truly appreciate the tremendous support we’ve received from our alumni, friends and industry partners. Because of you, last year we celebrated the largest fundraising campaign in our history. Essential: The NAIT Campaign raised $125 million in support of student success, applied research and campus growth.
Thank you for your continued generosity.
With my retirement, I become part of our growing alumni family – more than 200,000 skilled graduates and retired staff. I will forever be an advocate for polytechnic education, and a champion for NAIT. In fact, I will remain NAIT’s cheerleader-in-chief. I am so proud of our incredible institution.
A fond farewell to each of you who has helped make NAIT a better place – I simply can’t thank you enough.
With sincere gratitude,
