Ali was an exceptional Dean and human being. He was my mentor as a new dean at SFU, and he mentored me through kind encouragement, discussion, and most importantly, through example as an extraordinary and visionary leader. His ability to bring diverse communities of thought together into a true collaborative was his greatest strength. He was deeply respected by all and will be sorely missed at the executive table at SFU. I cannot begin to imagine the gap he has left for his family and close friends.
