Lily Fraser named VP finance and administration

St. Thomas University will be elevating a true Jane-of-all-trades to its top tiers in the new year.

Lily Fraser, who is assistant deputy minister of New Brunswick’s Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour department, was announced last Thursday as STU’s new vice-president finance and administration.

Fraser’s appointment means there are now two women within STU’s administration ranks. Dawn Russell became the university’s first female president when she was installed in October.

In contrast to the liberal arts school she’ll be presiding over, Fraser has a background in science with degrees in microbiology and immunology from McGill University. She’s also earned a master’s in health administration from the University of Ottawa.

Over the past several years, Fraser has worked in various social work occupations such as family and community services before moving on to auditing programs and medical policies for the Department of Health.

For more than two years, Fraser served as the executive director of the Department of Agriculture and Aquaculture and the Department of Fisheries.

As vice-president finance and administration, Fraser will be “responsible for providing a range of financial and administrative support services to the University,” the STU website says.

She will develop policies, procedures and systems to ensure “effective and efficient management and use of resources.”

Fraser will take over for Lawrence Durling, who has been a staple as STU’s vice-president finance and administration for over a decade.

She officially begins her new post on Jan. 3, 2012.
