Congratulations to new U. of C. Dean of Education Dr. Dianne Gereluk!

Congratulations to CFIS Society past chair Dr. Dianne Gereluk on her recent appointment to the position of Dean of the University of Calgary's Werklund School of Education! A specific line from the announcement really touched my heart and spoke to me, given its tie-in with CFIS's vision of creating active global citizens. The central premise of Dr. Gereluk's research has been that schools "have the potential and responsibility to cultivate democratic dispositions in students, and to thereby assist them to live cohesively despite our society's differing political, religious and social beliefs and values". 

Our school's impressive achievements over the past several years owe much to Dr. Gereluk's strong leadership at the Society Board level.
