Undergraduate Advisor, Michael More, had his last day as part of the Geography Staff on June 13. He has accepted a new position as Graduate Career Advisor for the Centre for Student Involvement & Careers in Brock Hall. As much as we are saddened to see him leave Geography, we are also incredibly excited for him in his new position! As an alumnus of UBC Geography (both graduate and undergraduate programs), Michael will always be part of the Geography family.
In his farewell email, Michael writes:
“… I’ll still have Geography in my purview, as I’ll be the point person for helping Geography students to connect to skills training, as well as outside-the-classroom experiences like co-op, community learning, and research experience. So I’m sure I’ll still see many of you now and again.
The Geography department is a very special place to call home, and I will very much miss the support, energy, and truly collegiate nature of this community. The teaching and research in this department is without peer at UBC, and the dedication and passion of our students, staff and faculty is unmatched.
I wish you all a fantastic summer, and a successful new academic year in the fall. I am so excited that Suzanne will be adding the undergrad advisor portfolio to her responsibilities. She will be an outstanding help to our students.”
