Re:   Appointment of Provostial Advisor on Tri-Campus Matters

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Professor Emeritus Jonathan Freedman as Provostial Advisor on Tri-Campus Matters, effective July 1, 2006 to June 30, 2007.  In this newly created role Professor Freedman will advise the President and myself on issues regarding tri-campus matters and have responsibility for facilitating discussions regarding a variety of the administrative aspects of the ongoing development of our tri-campus structure.

I am confident that Professor Freedman’s wealth of administrative experience, in particular his experience as Acting Vice-Dean, Graduate Education and Research in the Faculty of Arts and Science, and most recently as Acting Vice-Principal (Academic) & Dean at University of Toronto at Scarborough (UTSC), gives him the appropriate background to help us to address the issues posed by our unique tri-campus arrangement.
