All-In With Gitta Kulczycki

Gitta Kuczycki, Vice-President (Finance and Administration), University of Alberta
Gitta Kulczycki likes to lay her cards on the table, which is a strategy that has served her well in a career that’s included stops in health-care, tech, and higher education. As our new Vice-President (Finance and Administration), she’s set to go all-in when it comes to knowing her team and addressing the goals laid out in For the Public Good.

We sat down with her to learn about her U of A experience so far, the shift from Ontario’s PSE sector to Alberta’s, and her thoughts on leadership.

Andrew Sharman: The Path to Alberta

Andrew Sharman, our new vice-president (facilities and operations), came to the University of Alberta following several years with the Government of Alberta, and a 22-year career in the British Army. At first glance, these positions seem disparate—until Sharman explains how his career landed him and his wife, Yvonne, in Alberta, how skillsets like disaster response have spanned his professional transitions, and how an MSc in logistics management ties together his diverse experiences.

I sat down with Andrew Sharman to talk about his winding career path, the move to Alberta, his new role at the U of A, and… bomb disposal? Yes, that fits in, too.

Neal Davies: There and Back Again

Neal Davies, Neal Davies, Dean of the Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences
When Neal Davies left the University of Alberta 20 years ago, he was a fresh PhD grad, the LRT had barely crossed the river, and Dent/Pharm was still the home of Pharmacy. Since then, Davies has worked and studied at the University of Calgary, the University of Sydney, Washington State University, and most recently at the University of Manitoba. He returns to the U of A with international perspectives on pharmacy, a wealth of leadership experience, and a pining for Java Jive.

I sat down with the 8th dean of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences to talk about what has changed at the U of A since he left, what hasn’t changed, what it means to be a dean, and where pharmacy is heading as a profession.
