Congratulations to our own Professor Sheila Ager! Sheila will become the Dean of Arts on July 2019. She has long carried out important service roles at the University of Waterloo. Among these roles are the following: Chair of Classical Studies, Interim Chair of Fine Arts, member of Senate, member of the Board of Governors, Associate Dean, Arts, and the Director of the Academic Leadership Program.
