ProCom Chair Dr. Catherine Schryer wins Errol Aspevig Award for Outstanding Academic Leadership

Congratulations to Dr. Catherine Schryer, winner of this year’s Errol Aspevig Award for Outstanding Academic Leadership! This award recognizes significant contributions to academic life at Ryerson and beyond.

Dr. Schryer’s leadership exemplifies Ryerson’s commitment to student success, SRC excellence, creative innovation and community engagement. As Chair of the School of Professional Communication for seven years, her contribution has far exceeded the expectation for a chair to provide academic leadership.

Upon her arrival, ProCom was a small service department. Today the school offers undergraduate and graduate programs with experiential learning opportunities in state-of-the-art facilities led by award-winning teachers with strong research programs, strategic planning and collaborative spirit. Dr. Schryer’s outstanding leadership embodies the Errol Aspevig award.

The ProCom Connect (PCC) Mentorship Program is launching this March

As a PCAA initiative, the ProCom Connect mentorship program has been created to bring together alumni and current ProCom students.

As a mentor, you have the chance to give back to your alma mater while networking and gaining interpersonal coaching experience. ProCom Connect mentees will have an exclusive opportunity to learn from former students’ experiences and hear what life after graduation is really like!

Contact to become a mentor today and join us as we launch our ProCom Connect mentorship program at the upcoming Spring event on March 23.
