June 6, 2012 – The Lethbridge College Board of Governors has appointed Peter Leclaire as Interim President and CEO, effective July 1, 2012. Leclaire is currently the vice-president academic and chief learning officer at Lethbridge College. His appointment will ensure smooth transitions and the continued forward movement on many of the important projects underway at the college.

“We’re confident that Peter will provide sound stewardship while the search and selection process is underway for a new President and CEO,” said R.L (Randy) Jespersen, Lethbridge College Board of Governors Chair. “As a board, we are very appreciative that we have such an accomplished leader to help us through this transition period and continue the wonderful legacy that Tracy Edwards will leave behind as she bids farewell to Lethbridge College.”

Leclaire has been in his current role since 2005. His main focus as vice-president academic has been to work with academic and enrolment management services to create the best possible experiences for Lethbridge College students. In addition, Leclaire has recently led the development of the academic vision of the institution. This work focused on changing the learning experience for students to help to prepare them for a constantly changing world and assist them in their pursuit of success.

Leclaire is thrilled with the challenge and opportunity that awaits him as interim president.

“The board has provided me with a tremendous opportunity to lead the institution until a president has been appointed,” said Leclaire. “The momentum created around key capital projects at the college is exciting. I’m looking forward to maintaining and furthering the institution with the continued execution of our strategic plan.”

Leclaire has served on a number of provincial committees on behalf of Lethbridge College and the post-secondary system including the Alberta Rural Development Network Board of Directors since 2009, the steering committee for Apply Alberta, and the ITM Policy Framework steering committee. In addition, Leclaire has also spent the last 10 years coaching for the Southern Alberta Lacrosse Association.
