December 5, 2022 – Thunder Bay, Ont.

Professor Abdelhamid Tayebi, from Lakehead University’s Department of Electrical Engineering, has been named an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Fellow. 

IEEE Fellow is a distinction reserved for select IEEE members whose extraordinary accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest are deemed fitting of this prestigious recognition. 

The IEEE is recognizing Dr. Tayebi for his contributions to the control of unmanned aerial vehicles and learning-based control for robot manipulators.

“I am honored to receive this prestigious distinction from IEEE as a recognition by my peers for my career achievements in the fields of autonomous aerial vehicles and robotics. I am proud to count myself among the IEEE fellows,” Dr. Tayebi said.

“Certainly, this wouldn’t have been possible without my collaborators and students with whom I have been blessed to work over the years,” he added.

Dr. Tayebi received his MSc in Robotics from Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, and his PhD in Robotics and Automatic Control from Université de Picardie Jules Verne. He joined the Department of Electrical Engineering at Lakehead University in 1999 where he is a professor and the founder of the Robotics and Automatic Control Laboratory.

“Everyone at Lakehead Engineering is very proud of Dr. Tayebi’s achievement,” said Dr. Janusz Kozinski, Lakehead’s Dean of Engineering.

“He is a truly outstanding researcher who thoroughly deserves this accolade, which acknowledges his work over many years at the forefront of his field.

“We are continuing to expand and strengthen our research enterprise, and this recognition is another example of the exceptional quality and talent of the team at Lakehead Engineering,” Dr. Kozinski said.

December 2, 2022 – Thunder Bay and Orillia, Ont. 

Lakehead University officials were once again celebrating the amount of support that students received for financial aid on Giving Tuesday.

This year the university received an incredible $260,840, topping last year’s total of $216,000 by more than $44,000. This was thanks to donations from alumni, friends of the university, faculty, staff, and other donors.

Lakehead’s goal was $108,000. Donations poured in from not only Canada and the United States, but also China, Singapore, Mexico, Finland, and other countries.

Lakehead University had the highest number of participating alumni, staff, faculty, Board of Governor members, and members of the Alumni Association since the university began participating in Giving Tuesday in 2016.

“Thank you to everyone who helped Lakehead’s students by participating in Giving Tuesday,” said Mike den Haan, Vice-President, External Relations at Lakehead University.

“Your contributions will support scholarships, bursaries and awards that will allow students in need to focus on their education and not worry as much about their finances.”

A popular incentive returned this year, with the Alumni Association of Lakehead University matching all new gifts for scholarships, bursaries and awards 1:1, up to $52,000.

“We know that alumni living and working around the world contribute to Giving Tuesday at Lakehead University, but the kindness from our donors continues to amaze me,” said Mark Tilbury, Alumni and Annual Giving Director at Lakehead University.

“All I can say is thank you. Your donation will help students attend Lakehead University to pursue their dreams of academic success.”

This year’s contributions bring the total to more than $800,000 since Lakehead began participating in Giving Tuesday six years ago.

Professor in Health Sciences at Lakehead University and Canada Research Chair in Equitable and
Sustainable Food Systems.

November 30, 2022 – Thunder Bay, Ont. 

Lakehead University organized a collaborative event today to discuss positive initiatives on social issues affecting Thunder Bay, in partnership with Diversity Thunder Bay, the City of Thunder Bay’s Anti-Racism and Equity Advisory Committee, Confederation College, and several other community organizations.

Community Voices and Dialogues for Social Justice included two panel discussions. One was a community presentation of the First Voluntary Local Review Report 2022 – a systemic and comprehensive evaluation of Thunder Bay’s progress toward achieving the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

The other panel had representatives from local community organizations discussing what is happening in Thunder Bay that gives them hope for positive changes going forward.

“Engaging with the people doing work on the ground and incorporating a social and environmental justice lens is an essential part of good research,” said Dr. Charles Levkoe, Associate Professor in Health Sciences at Lakehead University and Canada Research Chair in Equitable and Sustainable Food Systems.

Albert Brulé, Chief Executive Officer of the United Way of Thunder Bay, said the United Way will use data gathered through the First Voluntary Local Review Report to support evidence-based, locally-relevant solutions to improve the quality of life at the community level.

“We look forward to sharing results and raising awareness by way of a new community engagement platform we are launching with our community partners called Empower the North,” he said.

“Through Empower the North, we aim to inspire civic engagement, to provide focus for public debate, and to help a range of players to take action and direct resources where they will have the greatest impact,” Brulé said.

More information about Empower the North is available at empowerthenorth.ca.

The City of Thunder Bay’s Anti-Racism & Equity Committee, Diversity Thunder Bay, and the Chronicle-Journal have been running the monthly One City, Many Voices column since 2012, featuring community members’ experiences on equity, diversity/multiculturalism, and inclusion.

The networking event celebrated the column’s 10th anniversary and acknowledged the authors and their contributions.

“This monthly column and the discussions that we had today are a way of bringing people together to explore the many views of those who live in this area.”

Dr. Roopa Rakshit, One City Many Voices Coordinator, said the newspaper column is a platform where diversity is considered a valued sentiment and not an abstract identity.

“Celebrating the column's 10th anniversary is a testament to the commitment this community has made to foster progressive ideas on race relations and social justice issues. Today's event brought a lot of partners together for collective actions and deliberations,” she added.

“On behalf of Diversity Thunder Bay (DTB), on the 10th anniversary of the One City Many Voices column, I would like to congratulate the contributors to the column for they have helped us in our work and struggle to make Thunder Bay a safe, inclusive, and equitable community free of all forms of racism and discrimination,” said Walid Chahal, Co-Chair of Diversity Thunder Bay.

“As a co-founder of the column, DTB’s aim was to encourage the writers of the column to not only expose the reality of racism, racialization and other forms of discrimination, but also reflect their diverse experiences, social backgrounds, and perspectives to help us foster better understanding and create harmonious relations between groups.”

the Lakehead Advantage poster

November 7, 2022 – Thunder Bay and Orillia, Ont.  

For the fourth year in a row, Lakehead University has been included in the top half of the Times Higher Education’s list of the best universities from around the world.

This year more than 2,100 universities participated in the rankings, with approximately 1,799 universities meeting the requirements to be included in the final rankings. 

The 2023 Times Higher Education World University Rankings has Lakehead University in the 801-1,000 category.

“Thank you to all of my colleagues, our alumni and our many partners who helped Lakehead University remain in the top half of the Times Higher Education’s list of top universities from around the globe,” said Dr. Moira McPherson, Lakehead’s President and Vice-Chancellor.

“This ranking recognizes that Lakehead delivers high quality programs, fosters excellence in research and scholarly work, and provides unique and transformative learning experiences that put our graduates on the path to success,” Dr. McPherson added.

This is the fourth year that Lakehead University participated in the World University Rankings. This year, Lakehead ranked second among Canada’s primarily undergraduate universities.

The University was included in the same bracket as a number of Canadian universities, and ranked above the worldwide median in the Research and International Outlook categories.

“Lakehead University’s continued strong performance in research is a major contributor to our strong showing in the World University Rankings,” said Dr. Andrew P. Dean, Lakehead’s Vice-President, Research and Innovation.

“Research and creative activity are an essential part of Lakehead University. A significant factor to our research success is the partnerships that exist with our researchers, both nationally and internationally.”

In terms of Lakehead’s position in the International Outlook category, James Aldridge, Vice-Provost, International, said this ranking recognizes the efforts Lakehead has made toward internationalization of the University.

“This work was done by continuing to recruit students from diverse regions and countries, and by developing new and exciting pathways and mobility programs for our students. We believe that continuing to grow and develop our international partnerships is essential to internationalization of our programs, faculty, and students,” Aldridge said.

“In 2021/2022, Lakehead was the university of choice for 1,479 international undergraduate and graduate students from more than 70 countries.”

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings judges research-intensive universities across each one of their core missions: teaching (the learning environment); research (volume, income and reputation), international outlook (staff, students and research); citations (research influence); industry income (knowledge transfer).

It uses 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators to provide comprehensive and balanced comparisons.

In addition to the THE World University Rankings, Lakehead University ranks 64th globally in the THE Impact Rankings, the only global ranking that reflects the societal impact of universities by measuring the institutions’ success in delivering the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

Earlier this year, the THE World University Rankings found that Lakehead was the top ranked university in the world with under 10,000 students.

Lakehead University hosting Indigenous Veterans Day ceremony and exhibit

photo of exhibit

November 4, 2022 – Thunder Bay, Ont.

Lakehead will host an Indigenous Veterans Day ceremony on Tuesday, Nov. 8 at 1 pm in the Agora with speakers from the University and invited guests.

There will also be an exhibit featuring photos and artifacts from the World Wars.

See below for more about the exhibit, which will be on display from Tuesday, Nov. 8 until Friday, Nov. 11.

The Indigenous Veterans of Treaty #3 project was developed back in 2018 by the Fort Frances Museum and Cultural Centre, Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung Historical Centre, and Glenn Jourdain of Couchiching, whose research and photos laid the foundation of this project. Unfortunately, Jourdain passed away in July of 2021.

This exhibit was curated in the spirit of collaboration and reconciliation. It shares the triumphs and sometimes shocking realities faced by Indigenous veterans across Canada and specifically those from Treaty #3. 

With a focus on the First and Second World Wars, including other wars to the present day, this exhibit highlights veterans, their triumphs, setbacks, Indigenous women roles, mixing Indigenous and military culture. It honours those who came home and those who did not.

This is a growing exhibit – it started with around 100 names of veterans, and now it has 324. 

The exhibit will also include artifacts and displays highlighting veterans of Anishinabek Territory-Robinson Superior Treaty (1850) and Métis veterans.  

Special thanks to the Fort Frances Museum and Cultural Centre, Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung Historical Centre, Thunder Bay Museum, Métis Nation of Ontario, and the City of Thunder Bay's Indigenous Relations Office for loaning Lakehead these displays.

Lakehead welcomes everyone to this exhibit.

$2m to support bold brain science in Canada

Lakehead professor receiving funding to evaluate e-mental health solution supporting youth in Northwestern Ontario

November 1, 2022 – Thunder Bay, Ont.

Twenty early-career researchers from across Canada will receive $100,000 each in funding for innovative projects to better understand the brain, through one of Brain Canada’s flagship programs Future Leaders in Canadian Brain Research.

In its third year, this signature program is anchored by a generous gift from the Azrieli Foundation, with support from the Alvin Segal Family Foundation, The Arrell Family Foundation, The Barry and Laurie Green Family Charitable Trust, and The Erika Legacy Foundation.

“As a nation, we are among the world’s five most active countries in neuroscience,” says Brain Canada President and CEO, Dr. Viviane Poupon.

“By funding early-career research in conditions ranging from epilepsy to depression to multiple sclerosis, Canadian researchers will continue to contribute to major scientific advancements in brain science that will further the field both nationally and internationally.”

The ultimate goal of the Future Leaders in Canadian Brain Research program is to reduce the social and economic burden of neurological and mental health problems through prevention, early diagnosis, and treatment.

This year, the 20 grant recipients are investigating a diverse range of brain disorders and diseases. From studying gene therapy for Huntington Disease, to examining the brain structures behind eating disorders in adolescents, to fighting memory loss, these forward-thinking leaders are contributing to significant improvements in the lives of people in Canada.

Dr. Aislin Mushquash, Associate Professor in Psychology at Lakehead University, and her team are receiving $100,000 to evaluate an e-mental health solution that supports transitional-aged youth in Northwestern Ontario. 

Many transitional-aged youth (18-25) suffer from mental health-related difficulties, which can have devastating consequences.

Effective treatment is desperately needed. Youth in underserviced areas such as Northwestern Ontario have increased need for and decreased access to mental health treatment, especially those in rural and remote areas.

Limited access and longer waits for treatment can lead to worsening symptoms, can increase the risk for more serious outcomes, and can negatively impact engagement in treatment once it is received. Dr. Mushquash’s team will evaluate the impact of a mobile mental health app (JoyPop) for transitional-aged youth waiting for mental health treatment – thereby providing youth with more timely support and helping them to improve their coping skills and mental health-related symptoms.

The JoyPop app is one mobile mental health app that has a growing evidence base demonstrating important benefits for youth.

This app is relevant to youth seeking mental health treatment as difficulties in emotion regulation are common across diagnoses. The research team has partnered with two of the largest youth mental health agencies in Northwestern Ontario to investigate the benefits of the JoyPop app within these clinical settings.

The main goal of this research is to determine the effectiveness of the app in improving emotion regulation skills among a diverse group of youth on the wait-list for mental health treatment compared to usual practices.

They will also determine what difference in emotion regulation skills is meaningful to youth, assess changes in their mental health-related symptoms, conduct an economic evaluation assessing the cost effectiveness and cost utility of integrating the app into clinical services, and compare outcomes among Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth, and youth across the gender spectrum.

This research can directly address youth mental health by improving accessibility and timeliness of care and transforming future service delivery.

Partners and donors include the Azrieli Foundation, Children’s Centre Thunder Bay, and Dilico Anishinabek Family Care.
