Roger Epp’s poetic meditations about the minor miracles, the difficulties, and the loneliness of leading a small university campus through a time of significant change are depicted in a series of elegant yet understated prose pieces, illustrated by his life partner, Rhonda Harder Epp. Taking a candid look at the many challenges such a position brings, Roger Epp humanizes, scrutinizes, and upholds the integrity of academic administrative work. Only Leave a Trace will appeal to those who work in universities, hold leadership roles in them, or care about the connections between higher education, students, and place.

He is author of We are All Treaty People (UAP, 2008) and co-editor of Writing Off the Rural West (UAP, 2001). He lives in Edmonton.
