Dean's Message


Since early last year the University and Hill and Levene Schools, along with the rest of the world, have been adapting to a “new normal”. We’ve learned, strategized and taken steps to provide students with an educational experience that is rich and meaningful in times that continue to be uncertain.

As we begin a new academic year I am grateful for the resilience that faculty members have demonstrated. They have pivoted course delivery to remote teaching/learning while being committed to delivering quality education and providing students with the learning outcomes and knowledge needed from their courses. I am also grateful to you, our students, who have been patient, and stuck with us as we continue to refine our remote course delivery.

While 2020-21 was not a regular year we still saw many successes from our students and this is part of our legacy here at Hill and Levene.

  • Hill ICBC Accounting team took home 2nd place in the (virtual) final round of the Queen’s University Inter-Collegiate Business Competition (ICBC).

  • Hill JDC West teams earned numerous placements in the virtual JDC West competition including:
    • 1st place Entrepreneurship; 1st place Finance; 3rd place Debate; 3rd place Participation; 1st place Charity Hours with 1,141 hours; and 2nd place for Dollars Raised for Charity with $16,132.
  • Hill Business Students’ Society held their 12th annual 5 Days for the Homeless initiative in March. The students raised $30,230 for Carmichael Outreach, bringing their 12 year total to $410,508!

  • Enactus Regina placed in the top three in their leagues in all three challenge categories at Enactus Canada’s 2021 Western Regional Exposition!
    • 1st Runner Up in the CWB Financial Education Challenge for the “Fifo” project; 2nd Runner Up in the Scotiabank Climate Action Challenge for the “Water Secure” & “You Should Garden” projects; and 2nd Runner Up in the TD Entrepreneurship Challenge for the “SaskMasks” project.
    • Named as 1 of 20 National Semifinalists for the third consecutive year! The team along with Enactus University of Saskatchewan also won the Collaboration Award at Enactus Nationals for their Pushstart project.

As I look to this upcoming academic year, I am excited that I will see more of you on campus and that we will have more opportunities to connect and collaborate in person. We are here to create opportunities for YOU, our students, and I can’t think of a better place to do that than here at Hill and Levene!

Be well, stay safe, and see you soon!
