“I would like to thank Jim, Cathy, and Glen for their outstanding service to the University of Regina,” said Roger Brandvold, Chair of the University of Regina Board of Governors. “Of course, Pam will continue to sit on the Board in her role as Chancellor and Gary continues his role as a member of the Board. I know that Cadmus, David, and Mark will contribute greatly to the work the Board does for the University, and I’m looking forward to working with them –  especially in light of the launch of the University’s new strategic plan later this spring.”
