OSHAWA, ONTARIO–The Board of Governors of the University of Ontario Institute of Technology has named business dean and management scholar, Steven Murphy, PhD, as the university’s new President and Vice-Chancellor. Dr. Murphy will start his new position on March 1, 2018.

Dr. Murphy is an award-winning professor, accomplished researcher and academic leader, and he comes to the university after four and a half years as Dean of the Ted Rogers School of Management in Toronto, Ontario.
