Ali's calm, thoughtful presence at Dean's Council at UVic was appreciated by everyone. He had an extraordinary ability to listen quietly and then choose the optimal moment to interject with a comment or suggestion that would coalesce the discussion and move everyone forward. As a colleague, he was kind and generously shared his wisdom and support. He was, for me, the epitome of what a senior university administrator should be and his genuine warmth and intellectual curiosity was apparent to all. He will be deeply missed.
