Search Committee for Vice-President (Operations and Finance)

The search for a replacement for Roger Couldrey, who steps down as Vice-President (Administration) on June 30, 2021, is now underway.

This role is critically important to the successful functioning of the University’s operations and finances in support of the academic, teaching, and research mission. The Vice-President oversees a wide-ranging portfolio which includes Financial Affairs, Facility Services, Human Resources Services, University Technology Services, the Office of Legal Services, as well as key ancillary and administrative support services. To clarify the key areas of focus of the role, the title is being revised from Vice-President (Administration) to Vice-President (Operations and Finance). This will take effect when the new appointee takes up office. This revised title is intended to clarify the focus of the role but does not entail any structural changes, either to the position itself, or to the portfolio.

The Selection Committee has been approved by Senate and began meeting recently. The membership of the Committee can be seen here:
