James Mandigo will officially begin his three-year term as Associate Dean of Undergraduate Studies in the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences on Monday.
“It is both a privilege and an honour to serve the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences in this position,” said Mandigo, co-director for the Centre for Healthy Development and an associate professor in the Department of Kinesiology. “The faculty has a rich history of excellence in undergraduate education with many award winning educators.”
During his years as a professor at Brock University, Mandigo has continually developed experiential teaching and learning opportunities in the classroom and with international development courses in El Salvador.
These initiatives and his dedication to student development have earned him numerous awards, including the Brock University Award for Distinguished Teaching and the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences Award for Teaching Excellence.
Mandigo said he is excited about the opportunity to build upon the faculty’s strategic plan and developing its strength as a leader in undergraduate education.
