 Re:  Call for Nominations for the Advisory Committee for Dean of the Faculty of Forestry



On June 30, 2012, Professor Sandy Smith will complete her term as Dean of the Faculty of Forestry.

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.

Nominations for the committee should be sent by Thursday, April 5, 2012, via the Vice-President and Provost's web site online form at
