Diane Janzen holds a B.A. in history from Carleton University. Prior to coming to Sheridan College in 1991, Janzen worked first in progressively senior administrative positions at Ryerson University, and later at St. Christopher House, a long-established downtown Toronto community service agency. Her decision to join Sheridan College was based on her desire to return to an academic environment to interact with post-secondary students in a supportive and meaningful way.
Janzen's educational background and her extensive administrative experience provide her with an understanding of both the challenges encountered by students, and the ability to analyze and organize the complex range of information and demands found in an academic setting.
