Leah Zelin the new face of University's Calgary campus

The University of Lethbridge Calgary Campus is excited to introduce its new Campus Manager, Leah Zelin.

Zelin is a born-and-raised Calgarian with an extensive background in post-secondary operations and leadership. She begins her one-year term on Monday, Oct. 17, 2016.

“After visiting the campus, I felt a great sense of community. I’m looking forward to meeting everyone there, being a part of the team and contributing to this learning community.”

In 1991, Zelin graduated from the University of Calgary with a Bachelor of Arts and then went on to earn a Master of Arts in English from UBC in ‘93 and an MBA from the U of C in ‘04. She’s also a Certified Professional Coach, and has training in mediation and conflict resolution.

The experience Zelin brings to the position is working with TEC Canada as a Thought Leadership Strategist and the University of Alberta Calgary Centre as an External Relations Officer. She spent over six years with the University of Calgary where she worked with the Faculty of Education as Director of Student and Academic Services, and before that she worked with Continuing Education as Director of Special Sessions.

“Having worked on a satellite campus with the University of Alberta and leading a team of seven with the University of Calgary in the Continuing Education department, there is a sense of familiarity having worked in similar educational environments before. I know I will enjoy my time at the Calgary Campus."

In 2007, Zelin was awarded the “U Make a Difference Award” for her outstanding contributions to the University of Calgary working and learning environments. Lorne Williams, Northern Campuses Assistant Dean, knows they’ve made the right decision adding her to the team.

“Leah brings experience with adult learners, has worked on a satellite campus, and values people," he says. "She’ll be a great complement to our current staff during her term. We are excited to welcome her to the team.”
