BRANDON, Man. — Brandon will be alive with music and art on Saturday, and Brandon University (BU) students and faculty will be in the middle of it all.
Band 101 begins on Saturday morning, showcasing 268 musicians from BU and the Brandon School Division. Grades 9–12 band students, under the direction of Anna Penno and Meaghan Walker, will take part in rehearsals and seminars along with members of the Brandon University Symphonic Band, directed by Wendy McCallum.

As Brandon University (BU) begins planning for our next few decades of growth and development, we are inviting all members of the community to share their visions of the future of the university, including how they currently use and engage with the campus.
BU is working with consultants who specialize in this type of assessment and long-range planning to develop a Campus Master Plan for the University.

BRANDON, MB – With “I do so promise”, Dr. Gervan Albert Fearon was installed as the 15th President of Brandon University (BU) before a crowd including students, staff, provincial and federal politicians, Aboriginal leaders, and academics and University administrators from across Canada.
Cloaked in the grey and blue robes of office, President and Vice Chancellor Fearon thanked the audience for the opportunity to serve and to lead, noting, “We are all here with the sense of a brighter future for the University, and that spirit binds us.”
University Chancellor Michael Decter introduced Dr. Fearon as someone “who can move people in the direction of positive and constructive change”, a theme repeated by the province’s Minister of Education and Advanced Learning.
