New Edmonton campus director appointed

Dr. David Keast has been appointed the new director of the University of Lethbridge's Edmonton campus.

He follows Naomi Beke, who accepted a position as associate registrar at Grant MacEwan University. Keast began his duties Aug. 1.

Keast holds an MEd and a PhD in Educational Administration from the University of Alberta. Prior to joining the U of L, he was Dean of Career Programs at Portage College, in Lac la Biche, Alta., a position he held for 9 years. In that position, he was responsible for the management of all business, health, human services, and university studies programs.

"David is a terrific addition to the U of L's management team," says new Dean of Management, Dr. Robert Ellis. "His experience, educational achievements, and knowledge of Alberta's post-secondary education market make him very well qualified to lead the Edmonton campus in today's increasingly competitive market."
