Mercatto quickly filled as friends, family, colleagues and staff came to celebrate Sioban Nelson’s accomplishments as dean of Bloomberg Nursing, and her new role as vice-provost (academic programs). All in attendance remarked on her considerable leadership, and the resulting partnerships that have ensued over the last seven and a half years. Growing the Faculty’s global reputation, creating strong ties with Toronto’s hospitals and clinical settings, and solidifying Bloomberg Nursing as a research powerhouse both locally and internationally, are just a few parts of the significant legacy she has created.
In her new role, overseeing the academic quality for the whole of the University, her guidance will contribute in elevating the academic standards at the graduate and undergraduate level. Faculty and staff, both past and present, wish Vice-Provost Sioban Nelson the best in her new role.
