Shepard: Bacon’s departure is “bittersweet”

Concordia University’s provost and vice-president of academic affairs will be leaving for Queen’s University later this semester.

In an announcement released on Friday, Concordia president Alan Shepard revealed that provost Benoit-Antoine Bacon would be taking up his current role at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario.

“He’s worked alongside colleagues to leverage opportunities to enhance Concordia’s reputation as a next-generation university,” said Shepard in his statement. “He’s renewed our academic leadership team and strengthened relationships with our full and part-time faculty associations. And he has fostered an environment that supports our students, academic leaders and faculty.”

Bacon, a Concordia alumnus, was appointed to the role by the Board of Governors effective July 1, 2013, for a five-year term. The circumstances of his departure have not been announced.

Shepard said that the process of finding a replacement will begin shortly, but he did not say how long the process could take.
