A change in leadership at the College

July 1, 2020

Another year has gone by and we have new leadership at the Loyola College for Diversity and Sustainability: James Grant takes over from William Bukowski as Principal of the College on July 1st.

The College is grateful to Professor Bukowski (Psychology) for all the work he has done in this position over the past year, and especially for his outstanding guidance and steady hand in the exceptional times of the pandemic. With expertise is social development, Professor Bukowski is a founding Member of the College and has long been a driving force and source of inspiration, with his firm committment to cross-disciplinarity in the classroom and beyond. Thankfully, Professor Bukowski will continue to be involved as a Member of the College. Among other things, he will be teaching two courses this coming fall: LOYC 330: Self, Culture, and Development, and LOYC 398-02: Diversity and Sustainability in the Era of the Covid 19 Pandemic.

Professor James Grant (Biology) has been a Member of the College for almost a decade and has contributed extensively over the years, serving as Academic Advisor for the Minor in Sustainability Studies and teaching one of the core courses for the College's Sustainability programs (BIOL/LOYC 205: Introduction to Sustainability). He has also served and continues to serve on numerous sustainability-oriented committees across the University, pushing for positive change within and outside of the University. In addition to his role as Principal of the College, Professor Grant will take on the co-directorship of the Loyola Sustainability Research Centre, ensuring that the links between our undergraduate students and the world of sustainability research remain strong.

As always, the strength of the College lies in the passion, dedication, and committment of its Members, including Professors Bukowski and Grant. We are very lucky to have them.
