Local city planner Paul Baskcomb has been appointed chair of Thorneloe University's board of governors.

Baskcomb replaces Steve Moutsatsos, whose term as chair ended this month. Moutsatsos will remain on the board and will continue to serve on its executive committee.

During Baskomb's time at Laurentian, he was a resident at Thorneloe University and an active participant in the Thorneloe community, including a term as student representative on the Thorneloe board of governors.

An urban planner, Baskcomb has worked for the City of Greater Sudbury and the former Region of Sudbury since 1987. He has served as director of planning services for the City of Greater Sudbury since 2009. He is currently acting general manager of growth and development.

Baskcomb has been a member of the Thorneloe University board of governors for several terms. He served as chair from 1999 to 2002.

He also served as one of Thorneloe University’s nominees to the Laurentian University board of governors from 2005 to 2009. He was a member of Thorneloe University’s Strategic Planning Committee and 50th Anniversary Committee.

In recognition of his dedicated service, Baskcomb was made a Fellow of Thorneloe University in 2003.

Thorneloe University is federated with Laurentian University and is home to the departments of Classics, Religious Studies, Theatre Arts and Women’s Studies. It also collaborates with Laurentian in the Bachelor of Fine Arts and Masters of Humanities programs, and offers undergraduate programming in Theology.
