As you may know, I am just beginning the final year of my five year term as Dean of the Faculty of Arts. I am fully committed to the Faculty and I believe in our collective mission to serve our students, our research passions and our communities. With this in mind, I have just informed the Provost that I agree to stand for a second term.
This means that there will be a Dean Review process, taking place during the 2014/15 year. The Provost's office will manage this, and there will be opportunity for your input, through a town hall meeting and after a public forum I will give in December. There will also be the opportunity for participation in the review committee. You will hear more about this from the Provost in due course.
I am very proud to be dean of this Faculty; we face complex times, but our strengths are many, including the privilege of working with some amazing people. I look forward to working with you all in the coming year, and to the discussion we can have about what we want to accomplish in the next 5 years.
