October 24, 2013. Dr. Paul C. Burns has been appointed as Interim Principal of Saint Mark’s College and Interim President of Corpus Christi College. He will assume these responsibilities on November 15, 2013.
Current Principal of Saint Mark’s College and President of Corpus Christi College , Rev. Dr. Mark A. Hagemoen, was recently appointed Bishop of the Diocese of Mackenzie - Fort Smith, based in Yellowknife.
Dr. Burns is an accomplished academic and has published books and numerous articles in the fields of Classics and Theology. He has been a faculty member at a number of leading universities in British Columbia and is currently Emeritus Associate Professor at the University of British Columbia. Accordingly, Dr. Burns brings to the Colleges considerable experience in academic administration and program development.
“Dr. Burns has been a strong supporter of Saint Mark’s College over the last four decades, and has served the College in various capacities at different times, including academic teaching, administration, and advising,” commented Michelle Chang, Board Chair.
The Board has commenced the transition process, as well as the search process for a permanent replacement for the Bishop-elect.
October 15, 2013. Rev. Dr. Mark A Hagemoen, Principal of Saint Mark’s College and President of Corpus Christi College, has been appointed by Pope Francis as Bishop of the Diocese of Mackenzie - Fort Smith, based in Yellowknife. Mackenzie - Fort Smith is Canada's largest-area and northernmost diocese.
“Dr. Rev. Hagemoen has been a driving force at the Colleges since his appointment as Principal of St. Mark's College and President of Corpus Christi College in July 2011”, noted Michelle Chang, Board Chair. “This is evidenced by his boundless energy in guiding the Colleges in accordance with their mission statements and the development of programs to further promote Catholic higher education. His appointment as Bishop is a testament of his significant contribution. His presence at the Colleges will be greatly missed when he moves to the Northwest Territories.”
“At the Colleges, Dr. Rev. Hagemoen is assisted by a very able team of administrative staff and experienced faculty, who will continue to serve the St. Mark's College and Corpus Christi College community. In the meantime, the Board will commence the transition and search process to ensure that operations at the Colleges are not affected in any manner,” said Chang.
The date of Rev. Hagemoen’s ordination and installation has not yet been set.
