Consultation and Feedback

The success of a dean selection process relies on a consultative approach, with feedback and input from faculty, staff and students, and key stakeholders of the Faculty. As such, members from the community that are served by the Faculty are invited to share in the opportunity of selecting the Dean. The Selection Committee asks for your advice and opinion on the leadership needs of the Faculty, the priorities, current issues, the future direction of the Faculty and any other key issues.

All feedback is collected on a consultation form, and may be shared with the Selection Committee. Nominations of suitable candidates for the position of Dean are encouraged and individuals who wish to stand as candidates are invited to apply.

Faculty Town Halls will be arranged to introduce faculty, staff, students and stakeholders to the members of the Selection Committee, receive information about the Faculty Dean selection process and learn about how to get involved in this important endeavor. Faculty Forums will be held to present the final candidates to the Faculty and to invite opinions on candidate suitability. 

The selection of a dean is vital to the success of the Faculty. The views expressed by members of the Faculty, university and wider community are important to the selection process.
