SIAST is still looking for a new campus director following the retirement of Peter Lapointe in December.
“The process is underway. The posting has gone up and we have been alerting people internally and, of course, externally,” said Bill Coulthard, acting Palliser campus director and director of Wascana campus in Regina. “There’s an ad that was in the paper recently advertising for expressions of interest in the position.”
He said the deadline for applications is Feb. 11. After that, the interview process will take place and he said there would hopefully be a new campus director “as quickly as possible.”
“I’m helping to fill the gap until we replace Peter,” said Coulthard. “I’m wearing two hats at the moment. I’ve been back and forth between Regina and Moose Jaw and spending at least a day a week (in Moose Jaw) but frequently more than that.”
He said filling in hasn’t been too straining because the people at the Palliser campus are very helpful in keeping the campus functional until a new campus director is chosen.
