Weigh-in on future of Arts & Science, next dean

The Office of the Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) announced today that a committee will be struck to advise Principal Daniel Woolf on the present state and future prospects of the Faculty of Arts and Science and on the selection of the next dean.

“We encourage all members of the Queen’s community to offer their input on the faculty and suggest individuals who might serve on the advisory committee,” says Alan Harrison, Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic).

Dr. Susan Mumm has resigned from her position as dean of the Faculty of Arts and Science, and from her academic appointment at Queen’s, effective June 30, 2016. An advisory committee chaired by the provost will be established in accordance with the procedures established by Senate. The committee will work in consultation with incoming provost, Benoit-Antoine Bacon.

Community members are asked to send their commentary and suggestions for membership of the advisory committee to the provost via email (lacey.monk@queensu.ca) by Feb. 12. Respondents should indicate whether they wish to have their letters shown, in confidence, to the members of the advisory committee.
