SJU Welcomes its 8th President and Vice Chancellor

Date: Monday, July 13, 2020
St. Jerome’s University welcomes Dr. Peter M. Meehan, whose term as the University’s 8th President and Vice Chancellor begins today. Dr. Meehan comes to St. Jerome’s University (SJU) with a distinguished record of senior leadership in Catholic higher education. As an experienced administrator, he has a strong track record of working across institutions to create successful partnerships.
 
 “At the heart of Dr. Meehan’s leadership is a commitment to the Catholic intellectual tradition and the liberal arts,” says Mary Ellen Cullen, Chair of the St. Jerome’s University Board of Governors. “He understands the value that Catholic universities can add to campuses such as Waterloo’s. Based on his demonstrated success as a Catholic leader, he will work with our community to realize SJU’s mission, support our faculty and staff, and inspire our students on their educational journey.” She adds, “His deeply rooted commitment to engage people from diverse backgrounds is a natural fit with St. Jerome’s, where all are welcome.”
 
Dr. Meehan notes that he “could not be happier about joining the community of St. Jerome’s University, which I have admired for many years", adding that he is taking on this role at a time when "open and inclusive Catholic higher education is so needed in Canada and the world.”
