Consultation on the Selection of a Provost
The Advisory Committee for the Selection of a Provost is interested in hearing the views of members of the University community to help guide the advisory process. The Committee will be holding face-to-face consultations over the next several weeks.
The faculty, staff and students of McGill University are invited to meet with the Committee:
- Thursday, May 8, 2014, 11 a.m.-12 p.m., Room 13 of the McConnell Engineering Building
- Friday, May 23, 2014, 11 a.m.-12 p.m., Macdonald Engineering Building, Room 388
- Monday, May 26, 2014, 10:30-11:30 a.m., Faculty Lounge of the Macdonald-Stewart Building on Macdonald Campus
The Advisory Committee is interested in whatever comments you care to make, but particularly would welcome your views regarding the following three questions:
- Do the existing summary of the Role and Responsibilities of the Provost* and Position Profile (from 2005)* adequately describe the position of Provost for the coming 5-10 years? If not, what changes should be considered?
- What are the opportunities, challenges, issues, and priorities facing the University and the Provost over the next 5-10 years?
- What are the required and desirable qualifications and experience, characteristics, and leadership skills that candidates for the position of Provost should possess?
