Hurricane Hazel is adding academia to her resume as the first chancellor of Sheridan College.
Hazel McCallion, Mississauga’s longest-serving mayor, was sworn in at the Living Arts Centre Monday.
“I will do whatever I can to make sure that every student who enters Sheridan knows that every door can open before them – whether they start or finish here with an advanced certificate, diploma, skilled trade or undergraduate degree,” McCallion said during her installation address.
The position – unpaid, spanning a three-year term – means McCallion will be presiding over annual convocation ceremonies and serving as an ambassador for the school.
Since that time, Sheridan has implemented a new governance model with the establishment of the Senate, a body with authority over academic decision-making.
