A long time member of the University of Lethbridge is leaving his position for a major administrative roll on the east coast.

Dr. Andy Hakin first became a member of the U of L faculty in 1989 and has been serving as the university’s Provost and Vice-President for the past 13 years.

Hakin has accepted a new position as President and Vice-Chancellor at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia.

During his tenure at the U of L, Hakin led a strategy to re-define the University of Lethbridge as a destination university with a strong focus on undergraduate and graduate student experience.

Hakin will assume his new role in July.
