Dr. Seung Hwan (Mark) Lee is a Professor and Associate Dean of Engagement & Inclusion at Ted Rogers School of Management. He is a distinguished teaching scholar from the Society of Marketing Advances (2019) and is a recipient of the Chancellor’s Award of Distinction (2022) at Toronto Metropolitan University, recognizing the sustained educational leadership and sustained record of teaching excellence. Dr. Lee is also the journal editor for Marketing Education Review. Prior to this role, he was the Director of Retail Management at the Ted Rogers School.
Dr. Lee is passionate about how we engage with external communities. He recognizes the important role that industry and communities have on student experiences. He believes student experiences must go beyond the classroom, and this requires curating opportunities for them. In this role, Dr. Lee’s portfolio includes advancing the Business Career Hub (career services, co-op, bootcamps, etc.), the Marketing & Communications unit and equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI)/Indigenization initiatives, among others.
With regards to EDI, Dr. Lee hopes to build an inclusive culture that will focus on establishing a sense of belonging for everyone, including students, staff and faculty.
“Rather than focusing on ‘one-off’ events or trainings, the vision that I have for the Ted Rogers School is for all of us to build new habits and perspectives that will lead to everyday actions and behaviors,” he says.
Dr. Lee also recognizes the strengths and the varied lived experiences that we have under the umbrella of the Ted Rogers School. As such, the goal will be to establish a “commitment to action” agenda that will be the framework and guide for us to evolve and keep us accountable in furthering our EDI efforts within the school.
Dr. Lee earned his Ph.D. in Business Administration from the Ivey School of Business at Western University. He completed his MBA at the University of Windsor.
