The Bulletin



On June 30, 2009, Professor George Baird will complete his term as Dean of the Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design. Dean Baird will be retiring at the end of his term.

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 new 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 this Fall with the objective of completing the search as soon as possible.

Nominations for the committee should be sent by May 16, 2008, via the Vice-President and Provost's web site online form at http://www.provost.utoronto.ca/committees/advisory/advald.htm
