I am pleased to announce that the Academic Board has approved the appointment of Mr. John Rawle as Interim Director of the School of Continuing Studies, effective July 1, 2005 to December 31, 2005.

Mr. Rawle, MBA, CA, is a Chartered Accountant and award winning teacher. He joined the School of Continuing Studies in 1996 as its CFO.  In 2000, he was given academic and business responsibility for the Business courses offered by the School (about one third of the registrations and gross revenues of the School) and was made CFO and Assistant Director. In 2003, he was briefly appointed Acting Director of the School, during the absence of the Director.  He was formerly Vice President Finance at Trimark Mutual Funds, and has experience as Treasurer and member of the Board of Directors, The Genesis Research Foundation; and Treasurer and founding member of the Board of Directors, The National Ovarian Cancer Association (formerly, The Corinne Boyer Fund).

I thank Mr. Rawle for his willingness to step forward for this important task. He brings to bear a wealth of experience at the School.
