Following the Convocation ceremony on Friday, June 15, UWinnipeg renamed a prominent corridor on campus to recognize the distinguished legacy of Dr. Marsha Hanen — the University’s first female President and Vice-Chancellor. UWinnipeg is proud to permanently rename the Spence Street Mall as Marsha Hanen Way, for her lasting contributions and continued support.
