Biographical history

In December 1999, the Special Assistant to the Vice-President (Academic) External Academic Relations position came into existence when the Director of Planning position was abolished. Dr. B. Lynn Bosetti became the first Special Assistant on secondment from the Centre for Gifted Education and the Faculty of Education. The two facets of the new position were 1) Acadmic Relations with municipal, provincial and federal governments and 2) Academic Relations with other educational institutions and other bodies external to the University of Calgary. The former would include involvement with Alberta Learning regarding Campus Alberta, Access Fund proposals, new program development and Key Performance Indicators. The latter would include liaison with other institutions regarding joint program development and other projects requiring cooperation and support between institutions. The Special Assistant would also ensure, in consultation with Deans, Human Resources and the Faculty Association, that issues related to third-party agreements are identified and addressed.
