2022 long-service employees celebrated

 

 

 

Employees who have been around for a decade or more had the chance to be celebrated in person on May 16 at a dinner event at the Clarion Inn.

President Joanne MacLean was delighted to greet the long-service employees and retiring faculty members who are receiving professor emeritus status in person after two years when the event could not be held due to the pandemic.

“It’s great to have a chance to gather and connect and celebrate accomplishment at a time in our history when we’ve been prevented from doing so by pandemic and environmental disaster. When we’ve been challenged to consider doing things differently … and while we’ve risen to the challenge, it has not been easy and it has not always been optimal. So being together tonight, spending this well-earned time together is truly a joy for me and I hope you’ve enjoyed yourself as well,” she said. “Each of you, … and our most distinguished professors, the Professor Emeriti awarded tonight … have made UFV into the institution it is today — A thriving place of learning, a work environment where people matter, a place of access to education for everyone across the Fraser Valley and beyond. A place of excellence, a place of inclusion. A House of Transformation!  I thank you for your dedication to our university, to each other, and to our students.”

MacLean also congratulated Service Excellence award winners Judy Larsen (Teaching Excellence), Carol Dickson (Staff Excellence), Karin Jager (Faculty Service Excellence), James Bedard (Research Excellence), Mark Goudsblom (Leadership), and the Teaching and Learning Centre team (Teamwork), who were also recognized at the dinner.

“Congratulations! You’re being celebrated this evening because your colleagues put you forward as the best of our best, as a leader among leaders, and I hope that you will take pride in your award, accept the compliments of your co-workers, and accept my thanks and congratulations for the distinct and exceptional contributions you have made, and will continue to make, to UFV.”
