I am delighted to announce that Ralph Young, CEO of Melcor Developments, has been elected as the University's 20th chancellor by the Senate today. He will be officially installed by Lt. Governor Ethell during the 3 p.m. June 13 convocation ceremony. As many of you know, Mr. Young is an alumnus and is already one of our greatest champions, so it is wonderful that he will be able to enhance his work connecting the university to the community in this new role as chancellor.
It has been a pleasure and a privilege to serve as chancellor these past four years. I know that Mr. Young will be an outstanding ambassador for the University of Alberta, and I hope he enjoys it as much as I have.
Details about Mr. Young are in the story online now.
