The following is a message to the York University community from Glendon Campus Interim Principal Ian Roberge:


Colin Coates


I am very pleased to announce that Colin Coates has accepted to serve as associate principal, research and graduate studies, starting July 1.

Colin held the Canada Research Chair in Canadian Cultural Landscapes from 2003-13. He has served as coordinator for the Canadian Studies program during much of his time at Glendon, and he was director of the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies from 2011-15.  Author, co-author, editor and co-editor of 11 books, Colin has been active in the graduate program in history. He brings a range of experience as a researcher and mentor of graduate students to this new role.

Audrey Pyée

Colin will be working closely with Audrey Pyée, who on Jan. 1 took on the role of associate principal, academic.

Glendon has made tremendous advances in the intensification of research and in the development of innovative approaches to teaching and learning in recent years. I am excited to have Colin and Audrey continue to advance these priorities, allowing Glendon to further demarcate itself for years to come.

I would like to thank Dominique Scheffel-Dunand once more for her immense service to Glendon. I welcome Colin aboard and thank him in advance for his contributions.
