Annual Fundraising Breakfast

Keynote

This year we are excited to welcome Dr. Peter Matthew Meehan, newly appointed as both Principal of Saint Mark’s College and President of Corpus Christi College.

Dr. Meehan is a Canadian Historian with a particular interest in the social, educational and political history of the Catholic Church in Canada, and in-depth knowledge on the history of the Basilian Fathers, who helped found Saint Mark’s College.

An experienced secondary and post-secondary educator, Dr. Meehan most recently served in numerous capacities at Seneca College, including as Dean, Academic Quality and Partnerships. In addition to being an administrator and professor at Seneca College, he is an adjunct professor of Church history in the Toronto School of Theology (St. Augustine's Seminary), and has Associate Standing in the School of Graduate Studies at the University of Toronto.

Dr. Meehan has extensive experience developing and nurturing academic pathways and partnerships between colleges and universities. He has led negotiations with Ontario universities resulting in articulation agreements that resulted in Seneca College becoming the "university through college" model in the Province of Ontario.

Dr. Meehan has a Master of Arts (M.A.) in History from the University of Windsor, and a Doctor of Education (Ed. D.) in History from the University of Toronto.

“The role of Principal/President of St. Mark’s/Corpus Christi offers a rich opportunity to unite my experiences in teaching, scholarship and administration with my commitment to Catholic educational leadership,” commented Dr. Meehan. “Meeting with members of the board, faculty, staff and students through the selection process, I was struck by their remarkable energy and enthusiasm to continue to grow and develop the Colleges in both their educational and spiritual dimensions. I am looking forward to working with this vibrant community to make St. Mark’s/Corpus Christi a centre for Catholic intellectual life, and a place that meets people where they are on the journey of faith at UBC.”
