I became Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences in 2004, but the sense of pride I feel continues to grow each time I think about the amazing things being accomplished by our members. Together we have reached new heights and the future is bright.
There are numerous factors contributing to our successes, but the most influential component has been the commitment to collaboration that lives in our faculty, staff, students and alumni.
What started out in 1997 as the amalgamation of three separate faculties (Nursing, Kinesiology and Applied Health Sciences), has become a network of researchers, students, scholars and professionals, working together toward the common goal of improving human health around the globe. We take this mission seriously and are proud of our contributions to date.
At the foundation of all we do in the Faculty of Health Sciences are our students. They remain our top priority and we continually seek ways to attract the best scholars and enhance their Western experience.
A university is only as good as its people. In the Faculty of Health Sciences, our people - faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends - are our priority. They make possible all that we are today and all we can be tomorrow.
Yours in Health Sciences,
W. James Weese
