Michael Burgess Obituary, Death – Michael Burgess, our Chief Student Experience Officer, will be greatly missed by all of us here, and it is with a heavy heart that we must now bid goodbye to him.
Michael has been a significant figure at the university for the past seven years, continually challenging Western to think in new ways and ensuring that the institution remains loyal to its fundamental principle, which is that the success of our students is the most essential objective. During this time, Michael has played a key role in ensuring that Western remains true to its fundamental principle.
“It has been a privilege for me to be in the position of supporting the student experience and communicating with you on a frequent basis. It has been an utter honor for me to have this role. It has been a fantastic adventure all the way through.” “I hope that the work that we are doing is having a positive impact and that it is enabling you to uncover your true potential and pursue your dreams,” Michael said. “I am grateful to be able to work with you.” The University as a whole will miss Michael tremendously, but we wish him the very best of luck in all of his future pursuits. Michael will be dearly missed.
