Following a visionary five-year term by Adler University’s now-former board chair, trustees have elected Joy MacPhail to take the helm.

MacPhail is stepping in for David Sinski, who led the board’s stewardship of two strategic plans, the university’s expansion into online education, and its move to a new Vancouver campus facility, among many other milestones. Sinski will continue to serve as a trustee on the board.

“I will forever be grateful for (David’s) strong, thoughtful, and transformational leadership,” said Adler University President Raymond Crossman, Ph.D. “The Board celebrated his service with testimony and song after our recent meeting.”

MacPhail joined the university’s board of trustees in 2013 after a long career as a politician who advanced social justice as a facet of the British Columbia New Democratic Party. She served as a member of the Legislative Assembly and as a Minister of the Crown.

She is a current partner at film and television production company, Shavick Entertainment, and the board chair for OUTtv – a Canadian cable television station which provides programming focused on LGBTQ communities. She is also chair of the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia, which is the provincial corporation providing universal auto insurance.
