In-person event returns, tickets available for Chancellor Charles Weaselhead’s final Chancellor’s Dinner

The University of Lethbridge will hold its annual Chancellor’s Dinner during Spring 2022 Convocation, marking a pair of momentous occasions — the return of an in-person event for the first time since 2019, and the final Chancellor’s Dinner for Chancellor Charles Weaselhead.

Weaselhead is the University’s first Indigenous chancellor and upon his historic installation in 2019, he presided over his initial Chancellor’s Dinner expecting it would be the first of four such events over the course of his appointment. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, Weaselhead will have just one more event, taking place Thursday, June 2, 2022, 6 p.m. in Science Commons Atrium, before his term as chancellor expires in the fall.

“Chancellor Weaselhead takes great pride in seeing our students realize their dreams and thoroughly enjoys having our community come together to celebrate their accomplishments,” says ULethbridge President & Vice-Chancellor Dr. Mike Mahon. “Unfortunately for everyone, we’ve had to present our convocation ceremonies virtually the past two years and I know for Charles in particular, this was very disappointing. I invite everyone to join us at the Chancellor’s Dinner in thanking Charles for his commitment to our students and our university.”

The evening will honour Weaselhead’s time as chancellor and celebrate winners of the University’s various awards. Those receiving the Speaker Research Award (Dr. Trevor Harrison), University of Lethbridge Volunteer Award (Dr. Trushar Patel) and Board of Governors Teaching Chair (Leanne Elias) will be joined by the University’s four honorary degree recipients in being recognized.

Sponsors for the evening include University of Lethbridge Board of Governors Chair Kurt Schlachter, Jason VandenHoek and the Blood Tribe Department of Health.
