Description: Reporting to the Dean of the Faculty of Management, this endowed innovation chair position, established in 2008 and approved through the BC Innovation Council, provides a unique opportunity for an innovative leader who is acknowledged by their peers as having the potential to demonstrate world-class research leadership.

The Chair provides this support by leading research projects, engaging in partnerships and collaboration on initiatives, providing evidence and input on policy and program development, identifying and mobilizing innovative solutions to pressing rural challenges, and developing capacity in rural development, sustainability and tourism in the rural BC ecosystem.
