Hiring announcement: AVP Strategic Communications

23 July 2021

After a competitive search, I am delighted to announce Jennifer Pascoe as Associate Vice-President, Strategic Communications.

Jennifer brings a strong commitment and passion for the university. As a communication professional at the U of A for the past 14 years, she has relentlessly pursued the building of its reputation, the fostering of supportive stakeholder relationships and demonstrating the university’s impact to our communities. This past year in her role as Executive Director and Interim Associate Vice-President, Strategic Communications, she has led the institutional team through great change and played a key role in designing the university communications organisation for the future.

Jennifer’s collaborative leadership will play an important role for External Relations at this critical moment for the University of Alberta. We are launching our new ER structure this week, which includes the building of a strong client-centred institutional communication team and culture. I look forward to working with Jennifer as she leads our strategic communications through this change.

Please join me in congratulating Jennifer in her role.
