Carole Wylie

As a dedicated community activist in her neighbourhood, Carole Wylie served as Chair of the West Broadway Development Corporation.  Based on her steadfast belief in the positive influence of accessible post-secondary education in breaking the poverty cycle for inner-city residents, Wylie was invited to join the Board of Regents at UWinnipeg in 2000 and served until 2008.

During her tenure as Chair, UWinnipeg took the lead in the redevelopment of its surrounding community. Wylie regularly exhibited her passion for the special role that the university plays, both in the lives of its students and in the larger community.

Wylie also served on the Board of The University of Winnipeg Foundation.
