New Career For Dr. Barnard

Garth Fredrickson, Chair of the Board of Governors of the University of Regina, announced the resignation of Dr. David Barnard, who vacated his position as president of the University in September 2005.

"David will be leaving us at a high point," said Fredrickson. "During his term this University has experienced growth in terms of programs, faculty and facilities. These developments have brought the University recognition not only regionally, but nationally and internationally as well. It will be a challenge to find someone who can build on the momentum David has fostered."

During Barnard's tenure a major recruiting effort achieved a renewal of faculty. Research funding quadrupled and a building boom doubled the available space on campus. The University also continued to build its positive relationship with the community, and to become a key player in the ongoing social, cultural and economic development of the province.

Dr. Barnard recently assumed the role of President and CEO of iQmedX, a company providing software and services for the health sector.

Dr. Barnard was appointed president and vice- chancellor at the U of R on July 1, 1998. From 1996 to 1998 he served as vice-president (administration) and controller. He is an Adjunct Faculty Member in the Department of Computer Science. We wish him well in the career and are delighted that he will maintain his connection to the Department.
