New Arts Dean is Dean-eriffic!
By Rhyanne Beatty
The Faculty of Arts welcomed Dr. Don Desserud as its new Dean on July 1st. This is the first time Desserud has been involved with UPEI, but he’s no stranger to the university setting. He has a Bachelor’s degree in English Literature and Political Science from Dalhousie University, two Master’s degrees, one in Political Science from Dalhousie University and the other in English/Creative Writing from the University of New Brunswick, and his PHD in Political Science from the University of Western Ontario.
“My academic background covers, then, both the humanities and social sciences,” he said.
Desserud wasn’t familiar with UPEI’s campus before accepting the position, as he had only been to the campus a handful of times, but he knew of the university’s “reputation as a strong, student-centred university.”
