Congratulations to Pierre Riopel, Melchior Mbonimpa and Réjean Grenier, named « Étoiles du Nord »

A few members of our U of S community were recently named « Étoiles du Nord » (Northern Stars) in a special number of Le Chaînon magazine produced by the Réseau du patrimoine franco-ontarien (network for Franco-Ontarian heritage):

  • Pierre Riopel, Chair of the Board of Regents
  • Melchior Mbonimpa, Ph.D., Full Professor in Religious Studies
  • Réjean Grenier, Études journalistiques sessional instructor

This special number highlights 25 star personalities to know in Northern Ontario, that inspire us by their work, their volunteering and/or their passion for Franco-Ontarian heritage.

We can see a recording (in French) of the launch of the number here.

Congratulations and thank you to these stars for helping la Francophonie shine. As an institution with deep Francophone roots, we are most certainly proud of your accomplishments!
