Dates of existence



The office of VP Resources was first formed in December 1977 when Richard .J Hand succeeded David Bonham. It was previously known as VP Finance. This change in name was intended to reflect a greater attention to both human resources along with finances. At the reorganization of the offices of Vice Principals in April 1976, there had been a transfer of certain administrative functions (personnel, purchasing, computing and capital development) to the VP Finance. But when Richard Hand succeeded Bonham, he asked for a change in the name of the office to reflect the emphasis he wished to give it. David Bonham returned to the position of VP Resources in 1984, a position that he held until 1988. At that time, Rod Fraser became VP Resources, and the office took on additional responsibilities for personnel and staff liaison, purchasing and food services, university information systems, and capital development and financing. During a major reorganization in 1995, the office of VP Resources was eliminated.
