RE:  Vice-Provost, Space & Facilities Planning

I am writing to advise you that Professor Ron Venter’s term as Vice-Provost, Space & Facilities Planning will be completed on June 30, 2005.  Under Professor Venter’s outstanding leadership, the University of Toronto has undergone the largest capital expansion in its history.  He has made a tremendous impact on the capital projects development process.   Most recently, he played a key role in the development of the “University of Toronto Capital Plan 2004-2010” that included criteria for the selection of capital projects.  

On behalf of the University, I would like to express my gratitude to Ron for the important and lasting contributions he has made to all three campuses of the University of Toronto.  There will be an event to thank Ron for his years of service as Vice-Provost, Space & Facilities Planning. Details will be provided at a later date.

With the conclusion of Professor Venter’s term, I would like to take this opportunity to do a review of the scope and organization of the Vice-Provost, Space & Facilities Planning portfolio.  I would welcome your comments.  Please send them to Sheree Drummond, Assistant Provost by Tuesday, March 1 (sheree.drummond@utoronto.ca).
