Vice-President Academic and Provost Search

Dr. Valerie Kuehne currently holds an extended appointment as Vice-President Academic and Provost, which is scheduled to end by June 30, 2022. An appointment process was initiated earlier this year to search for the next Provost.

The appointment committee has now been formed and Perrett Laver, a leading international executive search firm with extensive university experience, will assist with the search.

The committee’s first task is to learn about the requirements of the position and to establish criteria for the next appointment, and to do this will be engaging with the university community by:

  • Meeting with faculty, staff and students offering diverse perspectives on the position
  • Collecting written feedback from students, faculty and staff (a request for this will be issued shortly)
  • Hosting two open virtual forums on May 10 and May 13 from 12-1pm for faculty and staff to speak directly with the consultants and appointment committee members

With input and feedback from the university community, the appointment committee will work to identify and recommend the appointment of another outstanding Vice-President Academic and Provost to continue building on the university's academic strengths and to seek new opportunities.
