|cc:||President David Naylor |
As announced on September 10, 2007 (PDAD&C #9) on February 29, 2008 Professor Pekka Sinervo will end his term as Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Science. I expect to announce the appointment of an Interim Dean in December.
In accordance with Section 60 of the Policy on Appointment of Academic Administrators, I am writing to call for nominations of individuals to serve on the advisory committee that will advise the President on the appointment of a Dean.
The Policy on Appointment of Academic Administrators mandates the potential composition of the advisory committee as follows:
The Vice-President and Provost or representative (Chair);
Three to five members of the teaching staff of the Faculty;
One to three students of the Faculty;
The Dean of the School of Graduate Studies or representative;
A librarian, where appropriate;
Two or three other qualified scholars from within or outside this University, but outside the Faculty.
In addition, the committee may include an alumnus/a, a member of the administrative staff, and a senior member of the appropriate professional community.
The advisory committee will begin meeting in the new year with the objective of completing the search as soon as possible.
Nominations for the committee should be sent by November 28, 2007, via the Vice-President and Provost's web site online form at http://www.provost.utoronto.ca/committees/advisory/fas/nomadv.htm
Questions should be directed to Helen Lasthiotakis, Director, Policy and Planning, by phone at 416.946.0501 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
