I am pleased to announce that St. Michael’s has appointed Laurie Morris Director of Communications, effective Feb. 19, 2019. Laurie is an accomplished communications professional with over two decades of experience in news media and university communications settings. She comes to St. Michael’s directly from Simon Fraser University in BC, where she oversaw a comprehensive communications strategy that raised awareness of the institution’s mission and identity as Canada’s “engaged university.” She arrives at a time when USMC is experiencing the renewed relevance of its undergraduate and graduate programs.

I look forward to working with Laurie as a member of the president’s senior leadership team. Her collegiate experience will be invaluable as she leads us forward in telling the story of our community in partnership with the University of Toronto, the Toronto School of Theology and our community partners. You can read more about Laurie’s achievements and our excitement at her appointment in our press release about her hiring.
