Re:  Appointment of Assistant Provost 

I am extremely pleased to announce the appointment of Archana Sridhar as Assistant Provost, as of August 1, 2012. Archana comes to the position with a wealth of achievement and experience.

She received her Juris Doctor (JD) degree from Harvard Law School in 2001 and in 2006-07 was a Fulbright Fellow in Guatemala, investigating the legal frameworks of Guatemala's philanthropic sector, focusing on its tax system and nonprofit regulation. She has published several peer reviewed articles and policy reports, and is also co-founder of The South Asian Philanthropy Project, a charitable organization which fosters philanthropy among South Asians in North America.

Archana is currently Assistant Dean, Graduate Program, in the Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto. Before that, she was Associate Director of the Jay and Barbara Hennick Centre for Business and Law at York University and Assistant Dean for Research and Special Projects at the Indiana University Maurer School of Law. She has practised tax and non-profit law as an attorney in Boston and also served as Senior Director of Foundation & Corporate Relations for the humanitarian organization ReSurge International.

Please join me and the Vice Provosts in extending a warm welcome to Archana. She will be in transition, apportioning her time between the Faculty of Law and the Office of the Provost, until the end of August.
