About the Search Process

As with any senior administration position, the search for the president follows the board-approved Search and Review Procedures for Senior Administrators. The final decision to appoint the next president rests with the Board of Governors. To assist the board in making its decision, a search committee has been struck and is chaired by Board of Governors chair, Nancy Hopkins. Membership includes representation from the board, the Senate, Deans’ Council, General Academic Assembly, Graduate Students’ Association and University of Saskatchewan Students’ Union. Throughout the search process, the campus community and relevant external groups will have a number of opportunities to provide input that will inform the committee’s work. When the search committee has identified a preferred candidate, it will make a recommendation to the Board of Governors.
