Mark Salter

The University of Ottawa has been a supportive community in which I have crafted a successful academic career over the past 13 years. I found opportunities for seed funding from the Faculty, support for innovation in teaching, and a great deal of support for positive professionalization with my peers and the Centre for Academic Leadership. Being in the capital provided some unique opportunities to interface with the government and public media.
