My name is Heather Lane Vetere and I am the Vice Provost, Students at Ryerson University in downtown Toronto. I have been in this role since 2008. I feel fortunate to have chosen a career that allows me to interact with, support and learn from young bright talented students. I have studied at the University of Guelph and Bowling Green State University in Ohio and have worked at the University of Guelph and the University of Toronto. I grew up in the Niagara Region and I share my home with my husband and two dogs. You can follow me on Twitter @hlv1.
