Langford, John


John Langford joined the School of Public Administration at UVic in 1979. Prior to coming to Victoria he worked with the Royal Commission on Financial Management and Accountability and taught political science at York University. He became a full professor in 1983 and was director of the School from 1987-92. He was a Chief Federal Negotiator in the BC Treaty process from 1993-2001 working mostly with First Nations on Vancouver Island. As a teacher, his goal is to help students develop a critical understanding of the complex institutional, procedural and ethical dilemmas which they may confront as public administrators. He places a high value on developing oral and written communication skills. His classes - both face-to-face and online - are extremely interactive which means there is little lecturing and lots of dialogue and practical problem solving. In recent years, Professor Langford has taught largely online, designing and delivering courses in the School’s Diploma and MPA Online programs.
