An experienced Continuing Studies leader has been chosen as Okanagan College’s new Director of Continuing Studies and Corporate Development.
Dr. Dennis Silvestrone will be assuming the role beginning in March 2014. He brings with him extensive experience as director of continuing studies and corporate development, including positions at Vancouver Island University, North Island College and most recently, at the University of Manitoba.
“Dr. Silvestrone’s experience in the administration and development of Continuing Studies programs in post-secondary will be of value to Okanagan College as we continue to answer employer and regional demand for short term training solutions and reskilling programming,” says Dr. Andrew Hay, Okanagan College’s Vice President Education. “He will provide the strong guidance needed to move us into the opportunities associated with corporate development.”
“I’m looking forward to starting,” says Silvestrone. “Okanagan College has a deserved national reputation as a successful, innovative institution. I welcome the opportunity to contribute to the College’s and the region’s growth and development.”
