Minister Hawkins Comments on Memorial University President Gary Kachanoski’s Decision to Conclude his Term in December 2019

On behalf of the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, it is my pleasure to thank Dr. Gary Kachanoski for his many contributions to Memorial University and his work to ensure the province continues to provide world-class public post-secondary education. All Newfoundlanders and Labradorians can be proud of his stewardship of Memorial University and the institution’s valuable social and economic contribution to our province.

I have every confidence in the Board of Regents and university community as they begin the recruitment process for Memorial University’s next president.
