FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – September 8, 2014

London, ON – As it celebrates its 60th year, King’s University College has taken steps to improve its administrative structure by appointing three Vice-Principals to provide strategic leadership within its Senior Administration team. “King’s continues to grow and is establishing itself as one of Canada’s finest undergraduate universities,” says        Dr. David Sylvester, King’s Principal. “These changes reflect both the quality of leadership that currently exists within King’s, as well as the need to respond to the current and future needs of our community.” 

Dr. Sauro Camiletti assumes the office of Vice-Principal & Academic Dean; Marilyn Mason, M.A., the office of Vice-Principal, Enrolment & Strategic Partnerships; and Jeff Major, C.P.A., C.A., the office of Vice-Principal, Finance & Support Services.

“The establishment of these important new positions follow an extensive, campus-wide consultation, which included input from faculty, students and staff,” says Dr. Sylvester. “These are not additional appointments. This is a considered realignment of leadership roles within the existing administration of King’s.  They are intended to reduce the silo effect that can undermine our collective efforts and are designed to support better the women and men who learn and work at King’s.”

Dr. Camiletti has been at King’s for 39 years, most recently as Academic Dean. He is a professor of mathematics. Marilyn Mason has worked at King’s for 27 years as Registrar. Jeff Major has been at King’s for 11 years, most recently as Chief Financial Officer.

King's is a publicly-funded Catholic post-secondary institution founded in 1954.  King’s provides general and honors degree programs in the liberal arts, social sciences, business, and a master's degree in social work. It is positioned in the top rank of institutions of higher learning in Canada for the high quality of its teaching faculty and student experience. Institutionally-autonomous, King’s is academically-affiliated with Western University. King’s is open to students of all faith backgrounds, with its community centered on the values of social justice, equality and the education of the whole person.
