RE: Professor Sioban Nelson Re-appointed Dean, Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing 


I am pleased to announce that the Academic Board has approved the re-appointment of Professor Sioban Nelson as Dean of the Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing from July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2018.

The Search Committee advising the Vice-President and Provost received and reviewed feedback from faculty, staff and students of the Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing, and from the broader University of Toronto community. This feedback, as well as input from an external review report and from the Committee members, was very much supportive of re-appointing Professor Nelson for a second term as Dean of the Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing.

The support for Professor Nelson’s re-appointment reflects her outstanding leadership of the Faculty during her first term as Dean. She has brought stability to the Bloomberg Faculty; has enhanced the stature of its academic programs and research; and has increased its profile within the University of Toronto and with external community and professional partners. Professor Nelson has not only been a champion of the Bloomberg Faculty, but also of the whole of the University of Toronto's health sciences.

Please join me in congratulating Dean Nelson on her re-appointment.
