The University of Lethbridge is excited to introduce Dr. Rebecca Schiff, a transdisciplinary scholar and administrator whose research spans the fields of health sciences, social sciences, humanities and environmental sciences, as its new Deputy Provost.

Schiff comes to ULethbridge from an appointment as Dean of the Faculty of Human and Health Sciences at the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC).
