I’m writing today to thank UNB’s 18th President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Eddy Campbell for his tremendous contributions to our university, communities and beyond during his 10-year tenure at UNB. This week marks his final week as our president and although he will no longer be located here in New Brunswick, he has grown to be and always will be Proudly UNB. 

As chair of UNB’s Board of Governors, it has been my extraordinary privilege to have played a small part in Eddy’s tenure as president. I am very proud of what’s been accomplished under Eddy’s leadership. During his two terms as president, he completed a comprehensive strategic plan, fostered UNB’s entrepreneurial spirit, led a highly successful $125-million fundraising campaign, increased our endowment from $159 million to $320 million, committed UNB to a proactive Truth and Reconciliation process, and also during his term, he encouraged students’ academic and athletic achievements, including not one, not two, but six Men’s Hockey Canadian University Cup Championships!

In recognition of his service, I want to share this tribute video with students, faculty and staff. Please join me in thanking Eddy and wishing him the best in whatever comes next.

Thank you,

Larry Hachey,
Chair, UNB Board of Governors
