‘A Legacy of Impact’ highlights Trimbee’s time at UWinnipeg

After serving as President and Vice-Chancellor of The University of Winnipeg from 2014 – 2020, Dr. Annette Trimbee is stepping down from her role at the end of July to take the helm of MacEwan University in Edmonton.

While Trimbee’s accomplishments are too long to list, if there’s one certainty about her six years at UWinnipeg, it’s that she’s made an impact that will last a lifetime.

Her unique ability to lead was key in charting the University down a path of building a culture of support and inclusion, cultivating relationships and growing leaders, creating new student spaces, fostering partnerships and research with impact, and committing to reconciliation.

Trimbee was also instrumental in the creation of the institution’s five strategic directions, which are excellence and renewal; student experience and success; Indigenization; research excellence, knowledge mobilization, and impact; and financial and institutional resilience.

This special tribute to Dr. Trimbee provides an in-depth look at her time with UWinnipeg, insights from colleagues and partners, as well as a Q&A with the President herself.”
