The Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Murray Fulton as director of its University of Saskatchewan campus, effective January 1, 2018 - July 30, 2020. Dr. Fulton currently serves as the director of the Centre for the Study of Co-operatives, as a Co-operative Retailing System Chair in Co-operative Governance and has been a faculty member in the school since 2008.
With degrees from the University of California, University of Oxford, Texas A&M University and the University of Saskatchewan, Murray’s research and teaching interests are focused in a number of areas, including industrial organization, agricultural and rural policy, and public sector and co-operative governance. He is the co-author of a number of books and reports, including Canadian Agricultural Policy and Prairie Agriculture, and Co-operatives and Canadian Society. Murray has written many articles and papers on industrial organization, agricultural policy and co-operatives. Using a combination of behavioural economics and political economy, his current research is focused on governance and executive compensation in the public and quasi-public sectors.
He has worked on research projects for Canadian and international co-operative organizations, the Economic Council of Canada, the federal and provincial governments, and international organizations such as the FAO and the World Bank.
The school would like to thank Dr. Jeremy Rayner, outgoing director of the JSGS U of S campus, for the role he has played over the last two and half years. Following a brief administrative leave (January 1 - June 30, 2018), Jeremy will return to the school to resume his full teaching and research commitments, and will also lead the school's internationalization efforts - particularly with regards to research collaborations, student exchanges and programming.
