It is with great pleasure that I announce that the Agenda Committee of Academic Board has approved the appointment of Professor Ulli Krull as Vice-Principal, Special Initiatives, University of Toronto Mississauga from October 1, 2012 to June 30, 2016.

Professor Krull is a Professor of Analytical Chemistry and holder of the AstraZeneca Chair in Biotechnology. He is recognized as one of the leading analytical chemists in Canada. He has served as Vice-Principal, Research at the University of Toronto Mississauga since January 1, 2003, and has greatly enhanced the research mission of this campus and the University of Toronto as a whole in this role. He has previously served as Associate Dean of Sciences (1994-99) and Vice-Dean, Graduate (2006-08) at UTM. He has also been a very active member of the community, playing various leadership roles, including his current appointments as Chair of the Healthy City Stewardship Centre and Vice-Chair of Advantage Mississauga. Past awards/honours have included the Faculty Teaching Excellence Award at UTM, the University of Toronto Faculty Award, recognizing Ulli's excellence in research, teaching, and service, and the inaugural Outstanding Contributor Award from the School of Continuing Studies. Ulli is a visionary, strategic, and innovative thinker, who has a proven track record as an exemplary administrator and extraordinary leader, and is ideally suited for this position.

Professor Krull has kindly agreed to continue to serve as Vice-Principal, Research until that term ends on June 30, 2013, or earlier if a replacement is found.

Please join me in congratulating Professor Krull on this appointment.
