Re: Nominations for the Advisory Committee for the Principal of Innis College  

On June 30, 2015, Professor Janet Paterson will complete her final term as Principal of Innis College. Professor Paterson has undertaken many wonderful initiatives, including the renovation of Innis Town Hall and the development of a new PhD program in Cinema Studies.  Please join me in thanking Professor Paterson for her dedicated service to U of T.

In accordance with Section 62 of the Policy on Appointment of Academic Administrators, I am calling for nominations for the Advisory Committee that will advise the President on the appointment of a new Principal. The Policy 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 College and/or those who teach in the College’s programs;
• One to three students of the College;
• The Dean of the School of Graduate Studies or representative;
• The Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Science or representative;
• Two or three other qualified scholars from within or outside this University, but outside the College; and
• A librarian, where appropriate.
• In addition, the committee may include an alumnus/a and one or two members of the administrative staff.

The Advisory Committee will begin meeting in the fall term. Nominations for the Committee should be sent by Friday, July 25, 2014, via the Office of the Provost’s online web form at:
