Messages from the Leadership Team

Fully-Online University Academics - University of Fredericton (7)
Don Roy
President of the University

With an undergrad degree in Commerce from Dalhousie University, Don Roy spent more than 20 years founding companies in real estate, business, construction, land development, and restaurant industries. His career was widespread and varied, yet after seeing an advertisement for an EMBA during a flight, he decided to embark on a new adventure.

At that time, an in-class degree was his only option, so Don spent two years attending classes every other weekend and studying up to 20 hours per week, all while being a single parent. Don has always been an innovator and after completing his EMBA, he knew there had to be a more flexible and accessible way to complete this degree.

“The concept that you could actually get an equivalent degree and all the benefits … that you could get that without the disruption in your life, it was so appealing to me, and I thought, this absolutely has to happen.”

(Video) How Online Education Opens Doors - Chris, UFred Alumnus

With this in mind, the University of Fredericton became a reality and has become an institution that offers a unique type of course delivery. Since its inception, UFred has blossomed and improved the careers of many, but Don is not done with it yet. In the future, he sees UFred “really pushing the boundaries of advanced learning technologies.” With Don’s passion, knowledge, and hard work, the University of Fredericton will continue to educate those with busy lives and growing careers. Yet, Don knows he could never do it alone.

“There is no manual on how to build an online university, and we’re doing that, and it’s due to every person that’s on this team.”

The University is proud to have Don Roy as its president and if the past is any indication of what’s to come, his dedication and vision will help UFred to thrive in new and innovative ways.

Dr. Sheri McKillop
Vice President of Academics & Provost

When the University of Fredericton came to fruition, Dr. Sheri McKillop already had more than 30 years of business and post-secondary experience under her belt. As one of the first UFred students, she has roots in the University and its mission. After graduating from the Sandermoen School of Business’ EMBA program, Sheri stayed involved with the academic board until starting her official position at the University. Wanting to advance even further in the field of post-secondary education, Sheri chose to pursue her Doctorate of Business Administration from Northcentral University. She used her dissertation to focus on the unique benefits that online education has when it comes to employability.

“I’ve always had a love for learning, but I quickly realized that my heart and soul was in business … there is business in everything, no matter what job you have.”

Sheri’s educational background and career experience are the reasons she is so suited for her position at the University of Fredericton. She considers herself a lifelong learner who is passionate about delivering quality education to working professionals and is dedicated to doing so each and every day.

Throughout her years in business, Sheri has been given many opportunities, including being asked to lecture at both national and international levels. She has authored a column, appeared on television shows, and has had her voice heard on the radio.

Sheri has brought her passion and experience to her position at the University and is a role model to staff and students alike. She is not only a large part of UFred’s growth but also a part of each and every student’s success.

Academic Board

The University of Fredericton has parallel lines of authority, with academic issues brought up through faculty, Deans, and ultimately to the Chair of the Academic Board, while the financial dimensions are brought up through a parallel organization on the business side. The result is there is a place for advocacy of academic issues that is not automatically trumped by financial considerations while exercising the best management practices.
