Re:  Call for Nominations for the Advisory Search Committee for the Warden, Hart House  

On Friday, December 12, it was announced that Professor Bruce Kidd has been appointed Vice-President, University of Toronto and Principal, University of Toronto, Scarborough Campus.  Professor Kidd has held the position of Warden of Hart House since 2012. For the past months while he has been Interim Principal and Vice President at UTSC, Ms Rita O’Brien has served as Acting Warden of Hart House. She will continue to do so until the search for a new Warden has been completed. 

In keeping with University practices, I am writing to call for nominations of individuals to serve on an advisory committee for the appointment of a new Warden.

The advisory committee will begin meeting in mid-January in order to ensure that a new Warden is in place as soon as possible.
Nominations for the committee should be sent by January 7th 2015 using the webform for the Warden Search at: or by email to the attention of Joan Griffin, Assistant Director, Office of the Vice Provost Students, at
