  2. I’ve been lucky to know Joe both professionally, as a student representative, and personally, as a friend, over the past decade and since he first started at the University of Manitoba Housing and Student Life team. Over that time his passion and dedication for life, leadership and improving student life has influenced the way I approach the events of my life.

    His challenging of the status quo and “why not” mentality is exactly what our tertiary education system needs. Combine this with his endless number of new and innovative ideas and business acumen and you have an extremely valuable asset that, through Campus Living Centre Inc. will change the entire industry for the better.

    Congratulations Joe on your new role and Congratulations CLC for on this very worthy addition to your team.

  4. I wish to offer my most sincere congratulations to Joe for his new position at CLC. I have had the immense pleasure of knowing Joe both profesionally and personally since 2005.

    As an “international student” returning to Canada to complete university studies after years of living abroad, I will always be extremely grateful to Joe for helping me arrange excellent on-campus accomodation during my time at the University of Manitoba.

    Thanks to Joe’s assistance, my quality of (student) life was greatly enhanced and this in turn, contributed directly to a very successful learning experience and my eventual graduation from the U of M at the age of “40-something.” : )

    Again, sincere congratulations to Joe and also to CLC for having made “a very rare pearl” a worthy and extrememly valuable member of your team!
