Re:  Appointment of Prof Bruce Kidd, Interim Warden, Hart House


I am pleased to advise that the University Affairs Board of Governing Council has approved the appointment of Dr. Bruce Kidd as the Interim Warden of Hart House effective October 1, 2011.

Dr. Kidd is a Professor in the Faculty of Physical Education and Health and a former Dean of the Faculty.  In this capacity and throughout his career, he has been a leader in student engagement and student leadership.

Bruce teaches and has written extensively, having authored or edited ten books and hundreds of articles, papers, lectures, plays and scripts.  He is currently Chair of the Commonwealth Advisory Body on Sport; Chair, Maple Leaf Sport and Entertainment Team Up Foundation; and a member of the Selection Committee, Postgraduate Research Grant Program, Olympic Studies Centre, International Olympic Committee.

Throughout his life Bruce has been involved in sport and recreation, whether in the Olympic movement, or in recent years, in international development through sport as  one of the founders of Commonwealth Games Canada's International Development through Sport Program.

Bruce has a long affiliation with Hart House, having participated in past Review and Advisory Committees for Hart House and the Warden and has served as a member of the Hart House Board of Stewards.

I am very pleased that Bruce has accepted this interim position. The search for the new Warden will commence shortly.
