Digvir Jayas wants Lethbridge residents to feel they are part of the University of Lethbridge community.
The seventh president and vice-chancellor of the university was formally installed into his new position last fall.
His arrival on campus was, as the university has stated, representative of a year of change “that saw a significant infusion of new perspectives.”
The university also welcomed new leadership in other positions including alumnus Terry Whitehead being named chancellor; Michelle Helstein, provost and vice president, academic; Heather Davis-Fisch, Dean of Faculty of Fine Arts; John Doan, Dean of Health Sciences, Harold Jansen, University Librarian and Dean of School of Liberal Education; and Lisa Starr, Dean of Faculty of Education.
Jayas, who was born and raised in India is an internationally renowned researcher who studies the drying, handling and storing of grains and oil seeds as well as digital image processing for grading and processing operations.
