Re: Feedback re Interim Dean, Faculty of Arts & Science

As announced in PDAD&C #9 (issued September 17, 2007) Professor Sinervo will be taking administrative leave from March 1, 2008 and then ending his term as Dean of Arts and Science on June 30, 2008.

I will be recommending the appointment of an Interim Dean later this fall.  This interim appointment will allow us to conduct a review of the Faculty followed by a full search for the next Dean. I am soliciting feedback from the faculty, staff and students of the Faculty on this interim appointment.

Suggestions for the criteria that should be used in the selection of an Interim Dean as well as nominations for an Interim Dean should be sent to Helen Lasthiotakis, Director, Policy & Planning ( by October 12, 2007.
