Provost announces restart of search for next dean of Smith School of Business

Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) Mark Green announced on Wednesday the resumption of the search process for the next Dean of the Smith School of Business

The provost will chair the Principal’s Advisory Committee to advise on Smith’s future direction, and on the selection of the next dean.

“Much has changed since the previous committee last met in October, and thus I have decided to form a new search committee,” Provost Green says. “I think the community needs the opportunity to reflect on the appropriate composition of the committee for current circumstances, which include an enhanced focus on equity, diversity, inclusion, and Indigeneity within Smith and across campus.”

Provost Green thanked those who participated in the previous committee for all their hard work and dedication and invited members of the community to suggest individuals who might serve on the new Principal’s Advisory Committee.

Committee member suggestions can be sent to provost@queensu.ca by Tuesday, Aug. 18.

“Principal and Vice-Chancellor Patrick Deane and I would like to thank Interim Dean of the Smith School of Business Brenda Brouwer for her ongoing leadership as we continue the search for the next dean,” Provost Green adds.
