Welcome Back Message from President Diamond

​Dear Colleagues:

Happy new year to all faculty and staff! I hope you enjoyed the holiday break and wish you much success in 2020. On a personal note, I'm happy to be back to work and am very thankful to the entire community for the outpouring of support that I received during my health leave.

It will be a busy last six months for me. I will continue to work with our government relations team and Board of Governors volunteers to improve OCAD U's fiscal and capital support from the provincial government, and to seek federal and municipal funds. I will lean into our efforts to raise funds from private sources and help to consolidate new income streams (OCAD U CO and Continuing Studies). I will lead our final decisions on capital opportunities ahead; these will be instrumental in enabling the Flow: Curricular Transformation project. I will support efforts towards fiscal stability. I will continue to engage with research capacity building. I will continue to exert my best efforts to support an equitable, safe and supportive learning and work environment. Finally, I am looking forward to ensuring a seamless presidential transition.
