Dominic Giroux has been appointed as president of Laurentian University for a second term.
Giroux got the nod after the school’s board of governors endorsed the recommendation of the Presidential Review Committee. The committee is comprised of board and faculty members serving as senate representatives; it gleaned input from a wide variety of stakeholders in evaluating the decision.
“The feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive about the university’s accomplishments and progress since Dominic Giroux joined us,” Floyd Laughren, chair of the board of governors, in a news release.
“Our board is extremely pleased with President Giroux's performance and we are excited by the compelling vision that has been presented for the years ahead. We are fully confident that President Giroux is the leader to make the vision a reality.”
Giroux’s second term runs until June 30, 2019 and can be renewed at that time.
