"I am very gratified to have been appointed dean of arts and humanities and to be able to continue my service to the faculty in this new capacity," he said, in a press release. "It is a privilege to have the opportunity to assume this leadership role."

MacKay has also worked as a writing consultant at the Native Law Centre at the University of Saskatchewan and served as former vice-president of the VIU Faculty Association.
