Okanagan College looked to Alberta to find its newest regional dean.

Alison Gibson will oversee the South Okanagan-Similkameen region and also serve as the student, graduate and co-op employment director on the Penticton campus.

Gibson comes to the college from Alberta Health Services, where she had a variety of roles.

“I’m thrilled to be joining Okanagan College at this time of renewal,” Gibson said in a press release. “I am inspired by OC’s strategic plan with a focus on reconciliation, and equity, diversity, inclusion and social justice.

“Putting students first and being in community are important to me. I look forward to working together to continue to transform lives and communities.”

Gibson has a master’s in nursing, and has taught and conducted research at the University of Calgary and University of Lethbridge.
