It is with some sadness (and perhaps a bit of envy) that the team at the Centre for Extended Learning (CEL) shares the news that Dina Meunier, Associate Director of Online Learning, has elected to take early retirement to spend more time with her family (and likely a fair amount more on the golf course).
Dina started her career with CEL 12 years ago as an Online Learning Consultant. Later she assumed the role of acting Associate Director multiple times when CEL’s director took on other duties, formally becoming Associate Director in 2018.
During her time with CEL, Dina has guided and overseen much growth and enhancements in online learning and teaching, including implementing a new intake process and the Agile Development Team – not to mention helping navigate the last couple of tumultuous years with unflappable patience and grace. Over the years she has become a thoughtful, kind, witty, and respected leader, mentor, and colleague to many. Her loss will be felt significantly both within CEL and across the University.
CEL will be holding a small farewell gathering for Dina on Dec 14. Members of the University community can share their best wishes for her on Dina Meunier’s Kudoboard or email email@example.com if you wish to participate virtually in her sendoff. Dina, we thank you for your extensive contributions and wish you all the best in your retirement!
