Stephen Lewis a steal of a deal

Former UN Special Envoy for HIV/ AIDS in Africa appointed visiting professor at Ryerson

Stephen Lewis will be taking up residence at Ryerson University as a distinguished visiting professor this fall. And according to Ryerson president Sheldon Levy, Lewis came to the university for a bargain price. The president told campus paper, the Eyeopener, that Lewis’ salary will be less than the normal salary, between $50, 000 and $80,000, for visiting professors of Lewis’ notoriety. Levy called it “a relatively small amount compared to what would normally be for someone of his stature.” The former UN Special Envoy for HIV/ AIDS in Africa will lecture to both graduate and undergraduate students, on a variety of topics in the faculty of arts, and will give two public lectures a year.
