CBU inaugurates Farley Mowat Chair in the Environment

June 25, 2019

Cape Breton University has appointed academic, author, and environmental advocate Silver Donald Cameron as the inaugural holder of the Farley Mowat Chair in the Environment. CBU VP Richard MacKinnon stated that the Chair reflects the university’s vision to "think green," adding that Cameron recently taught a course at CBU as part of his Green Rights project. "Where other universities will focus more on the sciences, we have research chairs in things like musical traditions, for example. So we have gone a different path. I think we are a pretty innovative, resilient university. I think this chair is one more example of going down a different path that other universities haven’t taken," MacKinnon said. University Affairs (NS)
