Mike Bittle is equal parts communicator and bureaucrat and on a mission to bring the two worlds together. †With more than 5 years of working experience in higher education, Mike has found a home in Laurierís Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies. †As the communications coordinator for the Faculty, Mike provides internal and external communication support to the Faculty and its 40+ graduate programs.†

Graduating with a Master of Arts in Political Science from Laurier in 2009, Mike has a deep interest in graduate education and grad students as a result of his own transformative graduate experience.†

Mikeís work is guided by three core beliefs:

  1. Writing should be clear and simple
  2. The best solutions are easy to repeat and supported by data
  3. Even the best communications canít make up for bad process
Outside of Laurier, Mike is the father of two wonderful daughters, Amelia and Adelaide, dabbles in writing, teaching and is a fan of lifelong learning.†
