Review of the Dean, Faculty of Social Work

The University of Calgary is reviewing the senior leadership position of the Dean, Faculty of Social Work. This process is outlined in the University of Calgary Procedure for the Appointment and Reappointment of Deans. The advisory decanal review committee will be struck in the coming weeks, and the committee members will be listed on this page. For information on the composition of the Advisory Review Committee and other details please see Procedure for the Appointment and Reappointment of Deans Appendix 1.

Once the committee is struck, they will meet twice during April and May. The first meeting includes a review of the feedback received and the Dean’s self-assessment – which includes a summary of accomplishments and their vision and plan for the unit in the next five years. The Dean makes a presentation and is interviewed at the second committee meeting. Following the interview, the committee will deliberate and make a recommendation regarding reappointment as the committee is advisory to the President.

It is anticipated that the committee will complete its work and the recommendation will be submitted before the end of June. Information and updates regarding the review will be available on this webpage as we move through the process.
