Re: President's Advisory Committee on the Appointment of a Vice-President, Business Affairs - Call for Nominations
In June of last year, the Governing Council approved an extension of Ms Catherine Riggall's term as Vice-President, Business Affairs to December 31, 2011. At that time, Ms Riggall delayed her retirement plans to accommodate our University's needs and we are grateful for her dedication and exemplary service over the last several years.
Following consultation with colleagues and external governors, I have now struck a committee to advise me on the appointment of a Vice-President, Business Affairs. The Committee's first priority will be to provide advice on the scope of any search to be undertaken, considering carefully our current context. In particular, I will seek advice on the organizational structure of the portfolio, the position's scope of responsibility and a potential change in title that reflects the responsibilities. The Committee's second task will be to provide advice on the selection of candidates for my consideration in making a recommendation to the Governing Council. My goal is to recommend an appointment to the Governing Council in the late Fall.
The Advisory Committee, which I will chair, comprises the following individuals:
Mr. David Cheung (Undergraduate Student, Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering; President, Engineering Society) Professor Meric Gertler (Dean, Faculty of Arts and Science) Professor Ellen Hodnett (Governor and Chair, Academic Board) Ms Shirley Hoy (Governor and Vice-Chair, Business Board) Ms Kim McLean (Assistant Principal, Business and Administration, UTSC) Professor Peter Martin (Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics, Faculty of Arts and Science; Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics) Professor Amy Mullin (Vice-Principal Academic and Dean, UTM) Mr. Olivier Sorin (Graduate Student, Faculty of Arts and Science) Mr. David Wilson (Governor and Chair, Business Board)
Louis Charpentier, Secretary of the Governing Council, will serve as secretary.
The Committee welcomes your input. Submissions should be sent in confidence by August 15, 2011 to:
President's Advisory Committee on the Appointment of a Vice-President, Business Affairs Room 106, Simcoe Hall University of Toronto
They may also be sent by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
