Dr. Greg Anderson (BPE, MPE, PhD) came to the JIBC with experience in research, curriculum design, project management and university governance. Greg has been working in the post-secondary environment since 1986, with his most recent experience at the University of the Fraser Valley including Chair of the Kinesiology and Physical Education Department, Manager of the Mission Campus, Chair of the Education Council and Board of Governors member. He has a wide and varied research interest that includes exercise and occupational physiology, and body composition, is well published in both pure science and practitioner journals, and has been an invited speaker at regional, national and international venues where he enjoys translating “the science” for practitioners, providing them with a better understanding of the fundamental theory behind popular practice. As a practitioner, Greg has worked with physically demanding occupations (primarily police), and provincial and national athletes (most recently with the National Women’s Soccer team). For his work both provincially and nationally, Dr. Anderson was awarded the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) Health and Fitness Program Recognition Award in 2003, recognizing his contributions to, and leadership within the health and fitness field. More recently he was the recipient of the CSEP Health and Fitness Program of British Columbia Service Award, UFV Outstanding Initiatives Award, and the UFV Teaching Excellence Award.
Greg serves the JIBC as the Dean of Applied Research & Graduate Studies helping direct the institution through oversight of the Centre for Applied Research, Centre for Teaching, Learning & Innovation, and the Centre for Graduate Studies and Academic Planning.
