Skip Bassford

As a professor of philosophy, Dr. Skip Bassford is well known for his work in applied and professional ethics. He was Dean of Atkinson College at York University where he started their Continuing Education Division, founded the York Nursing program, and developed close working relationships with several colleges, bridging the gap between colleges and universities in Ontario. Most recently, Skip served two terms as President of University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) in British Columbia. During his time there, he was noted for leading UFV’s development from a university college to a full university, a transition that involved building internal academic capacity and engaging in years of active lobbying. He oversaw the development of UFV’s first graduate programs and the world’s only centre for Indo-Canadian studies. While he was president, the university more than doubled in size. Skip and his wife, Jane Darville, currently live in Toronto.
