RE: Professor Cristina Amon Re-appointed Dean, Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering


I am pleased to announce that the Academic Board has approved the re-appointment of Professor Cristina Amon as Dean of the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering for a five-year term beginning on July 1, 2011.

The Search Committee advising the Vice-President and Provost received and reviewed much feedback from faculty, staff and students of the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering, as well as from the broader University of Toronto community. This feedback, as well as input from an external review team and from the Committee members, was strongly supportive of re-appointing Professor Amon for a second term as Dean of the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering.

The overwhelming support for Professor Amon’s re-appointment reflects her exceptional leadership of the Faculty during her first term as Dean. She has been a champion of communication, co-operation, transparency, and increased diversity within the Faculty. She has enhanced the high standards of its academic programs, strengthened its finances and increased both the Faculty and its individual members’ profiles, both within the University of Toronto community and internationally.

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