Re: Nominations for the Advisory Search Committee for Dean of the Faculty of Medicine


On June 30, 2011, Professor Catharine Whiteside will complete her first term as Dean of the Faculty of Medicine. Professor Whiteside is eligible for re-appointment.

In accordance with Section 60 of the Policy on Appointment of Academic Administrators, I am writing to call for nominations for the advisory committee that will advise the President on the appointment of a Dean. The Policy 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 may begin meeting this spring.

Nominations for the committee should be sent by May 5, via the Vice-President and Provost’s web site online form at http://www.provost.utoronto.ca/committees/advisory/MED/MEDnom.htm  
 
Questions should be directed to Helen Lasthiotakis, Director, Academic Programs and Policy by phone at 416.946.0501 or email h.lasthiotakis@utoronto.ca.
