The University of Saskatchewan has appointed a new secretary.
The senior role, which keeps ceremonies, protocol and university processes on track, will be performed by Elizabeth Williamson come April.
“Elizabeth brings the right combination of skills and experience to the senior position of university secretary,” university president Ilene Busch-Vishniac said in a Thursday press release.
Williamson is now working as the director of legal services in governance for Cameco Corporation.
When she begins work at the university April 8, Williamson will replace current secretary Lea Pennock, who is retiring in March after eight years in the role.
The secretary keeps numerous university bodies and processes ticking along properly, including the board of governors, senate, and university council. The secretary also administers discipline and appeal hearings about student conduct, faculty promotion and tenure, interprets university policies and jurisdiction, oversees the institution’s internal audit, and co-ordinates ceremonies such as convocation.
