VIU Employees Retiring

April 29, 2021 - 11:30pm

Wishing VIU Retirees Well!

We wanted to take a moment to recognize a special group of VIU employees who are heading into their retirement between April 30 and June 30, 2021. These individuals have contributed greatly to VIU’s culture and the success of our students for years and even decades. Please join us in sending them a message of well wishes by clicking on their name that links to their email. And raise a coconut shrimp, a cup of tea or another beverage of choice in their honour when the moment is right.

To the Retirees: We wish you all the very best in the next phase of your life and know you will always be an important member of the VIU community. Thank you for your hard work and dedication throughout your time here.

Congratulations to Dr. Imogene Lim, VIU Anthropology Professor, on receiving a BC Medal of Good Citizenship!

“This important honour recognizes people who have gone above and beyond to offer help and kindness to others during these exceptionally challenging times,” said Premier John Horgan. “The latest recipients of the Medal of Good Citizenship make our province a better place through their contributions and provide an example we can all aspire to meet in our communities.”
