Dr. Fred Tappenden, Principal and Dean of St. Stephen’s College is delighted to invite you to join us in celebrating the announcement of our incoming chancellor, Michael Phair, on Thursday, October 13, 2022 at 10:00 AM in St. Stephen’s Courtyard at the University of Alberta – 8810 112 St NW.
St. Stephen’s College has a longstanding commitment to fostering sacred, safe spaces for all people. In our pursuit of educating the whole person, we work towards ensuring greater hospitality and equitable access for all people who desire to pursue spiritually integrated education. As an extension of this work, St. Stephen’s College is delighted to announce that Michael Phair will join our community of learning as the College’s Ninth Chancellor.
Michael has served as a strong advocate for social-justice issues, education, championed efforts to reduce homelessness, promoting affordable housing, and advocacy for the advancement of 2SLGBTQ+ rights in Edmonton and beyond. In 1992, Michael joined Edmonton’s city council and became Alberta’s first openly gay elected official. He went on to found HIV Edmonton (then known as the AIDS Society of Edmonton) and has served as a board member with Edmonton Homeward Trust, the Edmonton Community Legal Centre, the Edmonton Pride Society, and the North Saskatchewan River Valley Conservation Society. Mr. Phair is an adjunct professor with the Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services (iSMSS) in the Faculty of Education at the University of Alberta and was recently awarded honourary Doctor of Laws degree from the University of Alberta. These are just a few of his lifelong endeavors and accomplishments.
