Faye Wightman

When Faye Wightman agreed to become the uni versity's new Vice-President of External Relations (responsible for development, alumni relations, government and community relations, and communications), President David Turpin described it as a major coup for UVic.

Wightman arrived this summer from the BC Children's Hospital Foundation where, during her decade as president, she had helped to generate significant support for pediatric care. She sees a clear parallel between the old job and the new post: "I'm still involved with fundraising that will benefit kids-they're just bigger now."

Beyond building financial support for the university's teaching and research, the former clinical nurse says she will focus on "working with the community and with alumni and making people aware of how great the university and its people are-and in turn having the university recognized for the valuable asset that it is."
