Dr. Moira McPherson

Dr. Moira McPherson

I am especially proud to serve the Lakehead University community—our students, faculty, staff, and alumni—who, during a time when the routines and rhythms of our on- and off- campus lives have been upended by the COVID-19 pandemic, have adapted to ongoing and difficult challenges. While experiencing the tumult of the pandemic, we have become profoundly aware of how essential it is to learn from and support one another. Thank you, all, for your commitment to Lakehead.
