Dr. Louis Peter Visentin
Mr. Speaker, I rise in the Manitoba Legislature to celebrate the distinguished career of Dr. Louis Peter Visentin, president and vice-chancellor of Brandon University, who is retiring this summer.
Dr. Visentin committed nine years of his life to Brandon University. Prior to his appointment to Brandon University, Dr. Visentin was involved in a number of educational leadership and research capacities serving Canada. He received his Bachelor of Science, magna cum laude, from St. Francis Xavier in 1963, his Master's of Science from the University of Detroit in 1966 and his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in 1969.
Dr. Visentin began his career as a molecular biologist at Canada's National Research Council, where he was successively an assistant, associate and senior research officer. In 1984, he was appointed co-ordinator of the National Research Council Biotechnology Program, and in 1987 he commenced his career as a university administrator by accepting the post of dean of sciences and professor of biochemistry at Memorial University in Newfoundland. During his tenure at Memorial, he was appointed chair of the Newfoundland and Labrador science and technology advisory council. In 1993, Dr. Visentin moved to Mount Allison University where he was vice-president (academic and research), and a year later, he accepted the post of vice-president (academic) at the University of New Brunswick.
In taking up the position of president and vice-chancellor of Brandon University in 2000, Dr. Visentin immediately became a vigorous champion for the institution, building excellence at the university and a strong working relationship with the provincial government. A scientist by education, an artist by inclination, he presided over a flowering of the fine arts at Brandon University, with three galleries now on campus and an established program now serving students.
Dr. Visentin was awarded the Queen's Golden Jubilee medal for service to Canada in 2002, and was appointed to the National Research Council governing council in 2003. In the Brandon community, he has always been a good friend and a thoughtful man of ideas. Together with his wife Mary, he has made a mark on Brandon and the province over the past decade.
On behalf of the people of the province of Manitoba, I ask the House to join with me in congratulating Dr. Visentin on a distinguished career and to wish both he and his wife all the very best in retirement.
