Associate Vice President, Student Affairs
University of Saskatchewan
105 Administration Place
Saskatoon, SK S7N 5A2 Canada
David Hannah joined the University of Saskatchewan in 2002 to lead the newly formed Student and Enrolment Services Division. As Associate Vice-President of the new Division, which brought together Student Affairs and Services and the Office of the Registrar, Hannah is enthusiastic about guiding the transformation of student services at the University towards a truly student-centred model.
“Rather than running the student around the university’s bureaucracy, we are asking ourselves, ‘what do students need?’” says Hannah, “and then building our services and programs around these needs.” Student & Enrolment Services Division integrates services assisting both students and the University—from Recruitment and Admissions to Registration and Records, to Student Development and Support to Graduation —in a model aimed at making the student experience positive and productive.
As Associate Vice-President of Student Affairs, David Hannah oversees all four units of the Division. The Associate Vice-President’s Office maintains a close relationship with other administrative and academic offices on campus, and with the wider University community, to ensure that the functions and services of SESD serve the University, its students and the Saskatchewan public.
