The U of A has begun the search for the next Vice-Provost and Dean of FGSR and has arranged for Selection Committee Consultant, Colleen Keenan, to meet with different stakeholder groups.
A consultation session, has been arranged for graduate students, which may be of particular interest to international graduate students:
Thursday, January 5, 2017 from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM
Rm 1-16 Triffo Hall
Pizza lunch will be provided
As the Dean of FGSR plays a role in the life of each and every graduate student, it is important for graduate students to help define skills and characteristics for the new Dean, as well as issues they would like the Dean to focus on or that need to be addressed.
If you cannot make the session, you can provide feedback to the Search Committee through the consultation form. All information will be kept confidential.
If you would like to attend this session, please RSVP by emailing email@example.com.
