Re:   Extension of Prof. Janet Paterson’s Term as Principal, Innis College

I am very pleased to announce that Professor Janet Paterson has agreed to extend her second term as Principal of Innis College until June 30, 2015.

Professor Paterson has a record of outstanding leadership at Innis College. Her commitment to strengthening student experience and academic programming has served the Innis community very well. She has led Innis College through a critical period of planning regarding the College's advancement priorities and done much to promote an excellent working relationship with the Faculty of Arts and Science. She has been a strong spokesperson for Innis College, both to the internal University community and to the broader external community.

Professor Paterson's research interests reside in Quebec literature, postmodernism, alterity, transnationalism and immigrant literature. She is a member of the Royal Society of Canada.
