Roland Wensley

It is with deep sadness that Vanier learned of the death of retired teacher Roland Wensley, who passed away at St. Anne's Hospital, St-Anne-de- Bellevue on February 7, 2012.

Roly taught political science at Vanier College from 1970 to 1976, and headed what at one time was called the Social Science Division. He was very active in curriculum development and in the organization and development of Vanier in its early years.
