It is with great sadness that I share the news of the passing of Dr. Margaret-Ann Armour, our beloved Associate Dean (Diversity). She will be deeply missed, and we will honour her legacy by continuing to champion for diversity not only in the Faculty of Science but also in the broader field of science. To me, her greatest influence was felt most because she was just herself - - someone who had a passion for science, and someone who loved to engage with young people about science. I for one will truly miss her.

Please stay tuned for details on the celebration of life for Margaret-Ann.

With condolences,

Frank
