Subject Line: RE: “Eight overdoses in 20 minutes: The night fentanyl-tainted cocaine almost
devastated a B.C. town,” Sept. 12
To the Editor:
I am writing to you in regards to your Sept. 12 article “Eight overdoses in 20 minutes: The night
fentanyl-tainted cocaine almost devastated a B.C. town.” This issue has devastated Mount Royal
University’s student community. Recently, we lost a young student due to fentanyl use.
According to a 2015 survey done by Statistics Canada, forty-two per cent of students admitted to
using illicit drugs while aware of the risk. Another study by Stats Canada linked 475 student
deaths to fentanyl. The use of fentanyl by students is increasing drastically and must be
addressed.
Mount Royal University offers help to students whom may be at risk. Free counselling is
available for students who are struggling with drug abuse. We have also added information
seminars to educate students on the issue and encourage students to party safe.
Sincerely,
Carlie Minuk,
Mount Royal University

Call Me Terry

Dean Terrence “Terry” Clayton’s road to Southern Alberta University
Dyslexia affects three million Canadians nation-wide; Terry is one of those three million.
Many people with dyslexia may think that their learning disability will prevent them from
achieving their dreams, but Terry is an excellent example that with hard work and perseverance,
the sky is the limit
Terry has set many goals for the upcoming semester, but his biggest aspiration is to be a
strong supportive dean. “I have struggled with dyslexia since I was young.” Says Terry. “My
learning disability made me absolutely hate school. It was difficult for me to keep up with the
other students and it made me question my abilities as an academic.” The new dean’s struggle
with dyslexia motivates him to reach out and connect with students who are also struggling with
learning disabilities: Terry goes on to say, “If it wasn't for the support of my dean when I was in
university, I wouldn't be where I am today. Terry explains that, “Students need support and this is
exactly what I plan to do. I want them to know that they are not alone in their challenges.
Whether it is a learning disability, a hard class or a difficult professor, I want my students to feel
supported in all of their endeavours.”
Obtaining his bachelor degree at the University of Toronto, Terry went on to obtained his
master’s and PhD in education psychology from the University of Alberta. Clayton’s dyslexia is
what sparked his interest in the subject and motivated him to dig deeper into how people think
and learn. “My passion is the psychology of learning. I love learning about the different ways
that students learn and developing ways to make learning a better experience for those like me,
who struggle with it.” Clayton goes onto say, “Yes, my struggle with dyslexia made things more
difficult, but it also motivated me to push myself to do better.” Terry pulls up his sleeves and I
catch a glimpse of a tattoo on his arm. “My wife and I got matching tattoos on our anniversary,”
he says with a chuckle. three mountains for our three kids.” He offers me a cup of tea for the
road and insists that I call him Terry.
Southern Alberta University faculty merger


SOUTHERN ALBERTA UNIVERSITY
NEWS RELEASE
Oct. 24, 2016

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Southern Alberta University education and social work faculty merger
Two for the price of one: Alberta’s first merged faculty led by Dean Terrance Clayton.
CALGARY – Southern Alberta University is combining its two smallest faculties, education and
social work. This cost-effective merger will take effect in September, 2017. Overseeing the
inaugural faculty, will be Dean Terrence Clayton.
“[Due] to a decline in funding to the university, we had to reduce our costs,” says Vicki
Mendoza, university provost and vice-president academic.“We were trying to minimize the
impact of budget cuts on students.” In addition to the savings, merging of the two faculties will
allow students to have more options and flexibility with their degree. Mendoza goes on to say,
“We felt there was a natural synergy between the work of these two faculties.” Many students
currently take courses from both faculties, making the merger an easy transition.
The amalgamation of the faculties will not change the degree students will earn. Mendoza says,
“Students will still earn distinct degrees from whichever school they are enrolled in.” Since the
schools are still operating independently, the university does not foresee any job losses. As the
pervious associate dean of undergraduate programs at Red Deer University, Terrence Clayton is
an excellent fit for the job. Students with questions about the merger are invited to attend an open
meeting with Dean Clayton on Sept.1, 2017.
