The University of Winnipeg has reappointed Bob Silver to a third term as Chancellor to 2018.

The business and community leader is the president of Western Glove Works, co-owner of the Warehouse One retail chain, and co-owner of the Winnipeg Free Press and Brandon Sun.

“The University of Winnipeg plays an incredibly important role in bridging the gap between communities, to practicing and teaching inclusiveness, and to further strengthening our downtown and our city,” said Silver. “I am honuored to continue in my role as Chancellor and to contribute to UWinnipeg’s future.”

The three-year volunteer term includes responsibilities of participating in convocations and conferring degrees, participating in meetings as well as assisting with government relations and promotion of the university.
