Advisory Review Committee established for the Centre for Health Services and Policy Research

In accordance with the Senate Policy on Procedures Governing the Establishment, Reporting and Review of Research Centres, Institutes and other Entities at Queen’s University, a review committee must examine each centre or institute every five years. The Centre for Health Services and Policy Research is due for review and an advisory review committee has been established to make a recommendation concerning the renewal of the centre. The committee comprises:

• Kim Richard Nossal, Director, Queen’s Centre for International and Defence Policy and Professor, Department of Political Studies

• Richard V. Birtwhistle, Professor, Department of Family Medicine
• Dana S. Edge, Associate Professor, School of Nursing
• Margo L. Paterson, Professor, School of Rehabilitation Therapy

Administrative Support
• Gail Knutson, Senior Staffing Officer, Faculty of Health Sciences

To assist with the review, faculty, staff, students and all other members of the university community are invited to submit their comments on the centre by September 19, 2011. Please send to the chair of the committee in c/o Gail Knutson, Macklem House, 18 Barrie Street, or by e-mail to gail.knutson@queensu.ca. Submissions will be shared with the members of the review committee and will become part of the review process; anonymous submission will not be accepted. The identity of those who write will remain confidential to committee members.

Faculty required to serve on Senate committees

Committee service is a valuable way in which members of the university community participate in the governance of Queen's. Senate committees discuss issues of broad interest to the academic community, and make recommendations on policy and practice that are essential to the university's operations and evolution.

At this time the Senate Nominating Committee seeks faculty who are willing to put their names forward for committee service, for the University Promotions Committee (must be a tenured professor), the University Promotions Advisory Committee (must hold the rank of Full Professor) or the Information Technology Committee beginning September 1, 2011. Terms are usually for two years, with the number of meetings per year depending on the particular committee's area of responsibility.

For a list of vacancies, visit the website. You can click on the committee name to read the terms of reference and composition. An online application form is at the bottom of the vacancy list.

Community members are urged to consider putting their name forward, either for a committee dealing with a subject that is of immediate interest or concern to you, or for a committee dealing with a subject that you know is important. Either way, committee work allows you to directly impact the way Queen's functions as a teaching and research institution, and as a community of scholars, students and staff.

Applications are accepted until the positions are filled.

If you wish to discuss the opportunity of serving on a Senate Committee, please feel free to contact the Secretariat Office at (613) 533-6095.
