Glenn Cleland, director of the Faculty of Business Administration's Centre for Financial Studies received a UNB Distinguished Service Award. This award is given to employees of the University of New Brunswick to recognize outstanding service to the university including teaching, research, administrative contributions, or any combination thereof.

Glen Cleland conceived the idea for the Student Investment Fund while he was an employee with the New Brunswick Investment Management Corporation, then championed the idea to the Faculty of Business Administration and NBIMC. The program was launched in 1998 when NBIMC provided a #1 million pension asset fund to students enrolled in UNB's BBA and MBA programs to invest. Since then the fund has grown to over $2.2 million.

Glenn joined the Faculty of Business Administration in 2002 as the founding director of the Centre for Financial Studies. Under his leadership, the Centre and its flagship program, the Student Investment Fund, have expanded to gain the attention and respect of academic and financial communicates across the country and internationally.
