Roger Kingsley

(33 years)

By Jo Snyder

Roger Kingsley completed his BA and a Master's of Math at the University of Waterloo before pursing his PhD in Computer Science and Math at the University of Manitoba. He joined The University of Winnipeg in 1974 as an assistant-director academic of the Computer Science Department. In that role he was exclusively responsible for all of the academic computer programming in the university until 1988. One of his main projects at that time was working closing with The University of Winnipeg Students' Association and the faculty to develop the first course evaluation program. He started teaching in 1975 for the Math Department but quickly developed and taught two half-courses in Computer Science. Kingsley is known for his clear and well-organized lectures.

In 1988 Kingsley left the Math Department to become the University Secretary, involving himself in many areas of governance. Kingsley has also been a member of the Senate and honorary degrees committee, and he was a driver behind having a special convocation for the 40th year anniversary this upcoming Fall. At the end of 2005 he stepped down as Secretary and returned to the Math Department.

Outside of the University, Kingsley been a dedicated volunteer with Scouts Canada and the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Canada. Of his career at The University of Winnipeg, he says, "Quite frankly I wouldn't trade my experience here for anything I can think of as an alternative life. This has been an exhilarating place of employment."

In retirement, Kingsley will continue to teach some courses, but in the immediate future will spend time with his wife and travel to Scotland.
