Office of The Principal
Since the departure of Dr. David Sylvester in March 2018, Dr. Sauro Camiletti has capably served in his role as Interim Principal and Academic Dean. Dr. Camiletti has been supported by Marilyn Mason, M.A, Vice-Principal, Enrolment Services and Strategic Partnerships and Jeff Major, C.P.A., C.A., Vice-Principal, Finance and Support Services.
The search for a permanent Principal continues. The interim leadership team is working together with King’s staff, faculty and students with the common goal of moving King’s forward towards providing the best education and student experience possible. King’s continues to grow and establish itself as one of Canada’s finest undergraduate universities. The Fall Term has seen a significant increase in enrolment, the welcoming of new faculty and staff, the introduction of a new Mental Health and Wellness Plan and King’s first-ever campus-wide career fair. In October, King’s announced a land transfer of 18 acres from the Diocese of London, which will double the size of the campus.
Dr. Camiletti has been at King’s for 43 years, while Marilyn Mason has been at King’s for 31 years and Jeff Major has been at King’s for 15 years. All three were appointed to their roles as Vice-Principals in 2014.
To the members of the King's University College Community,
On behalf of the Board, I would like to congratulate Dr. Sylvester on his appointment as President and Vice-Chancellor elect of the University of St. Michael's College at the University of Toronto. In order to assist Dr. Sylvester in his transition to his new position and to permit Dr. Camiletti, and Vice-Principals Mason and Major in their transition to leadership, Dr. Sylvester's last day of service to King's will be March 31st, 2018.
Please see Dr. Sylvester's message to the community regarding his departure.
Dr. Kelly Regan
Dear King's colleagues and students,
I want to thank the King's community for the tremendous support they have shown me during my two terms as Principal. This is a very special place, shaped by decades of unparalleled student leadership, a faculty and staff that is academically and professionally second to none, and friends and alumni of King's who believe in the value of what you are doing for your students and the broader common good.
Thank you all again. I wish you all the best as you transition into the next chapter of the College's history, and as President-elect of St. Michael's I anticipate exploring with the King's community potential partnerships that will serve both institutions. And, of course, you are most welcome to visit should you find yourself in the neighbourhood of the University of Toronto.
David Sylvester, PhD
