I want to advise you that the baton for the Research Consultant position is being passed along! As you may know, Roger Fisher has decided to retire this coming September, leaving behind a legacy as the pioneer in establishing the Research Consultant role. In addition to his own significant and often cited research work, Roger has made substantial contributions to the advancement of Fanshawe's applied research and innovation agenda. We'll miss you Roger!
