Anyone know why TRU has picked the second non-law school affiliated interim dean? This individual is not a lawyer, no history of legal teaching or legal research. Is the provost hand picking the interim deans who are just obedient? Why is this happening? Seems like clocktower is trying to control the law faculty. Whose next a butcher from the culinary school?
I am pleased to announce that Chris Adam will be assuming the position of Interim Dean for the Faculty of Law for three months starting July 1. We are grateful for her support of TRU and the Faculty of Law during this transition period, and look forward to finalizing our search for a new dean.
Chris has held the role of Dean of Students, Faculty of Student Development since joining TRU in 2010. She has led a wide range of academic and student services, including Career and Experiential Learning, Counselling Services and Accessibility Services, and initiatives such as the Sexualized Violence Policy Consultation and the President’s Task Force on Mental Health.
Chris completed her BA in English Literature at the University of Ottawa, followed by a Certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language (CTESL) and a Master of Arts in Applied Language Studies at Carleton University. She is passionate about supporting university students in the pursuit of their personal and professional goals.
Sara Wolfe will continue her role as Acting Dean of Students, Faculty of Student Development until Sept. 30, a role she began in January to replace Chris during her six-month administrative leave.
I would like to take this opportunity to formally thank Dennis Acreman for his dedication and leadership in the Faculty of Law for the past six months, and wish him all of the very best as he begins his much-deserved administrative leave.
Please join me in wishing Chris success as she takes on the leadership and support of the students, faculty and staff of TRU Law.
Provost and Vice-President Academic and Research
