THUNDER BAY — Red Rock Indian Band’s Paul Cormier is looking to raise the profile of Lakehead University’s Department of Aboriginal Education after being appointed as chair for Aboriginal Education on July 1.

“I’ve been an assistant professor in Aboriginal Education [at Lakehead University] for five years and I was tenured this summer on July 1,” says Cormier, who was selected as chair for Aboriginal Education through a peer-review process. “I’m just trying to get my feet wet but trying to raise the profile of the department a little bit and to let the public know that I think we’re moving in a really good direction by hiring and promoting Indigenous staff within the Faculty of Education.”

Cormier has a Ph.D. in Peace and Conflict Studies from the University of Manitoba, a Masters of Conflict Analysis and Management from Royal Roads University and a Bachelor of Education from McGill University.
