February 17, 2006 - Campus Bulletin

Prof. Alan Wildeman will be completing his first term as vice-president (research) on July 1, 2006, and has expressed interest in being reappointed for a second five-year term.

Accordingly, as per the University's Faculty Policy, a committee has been created to review Wildeman’s first term. Chaired by president Alastair Summerlee, the committee consists of graduate studies dean Isobel Heathcote; OVC dean Elizabeth Stone; Prof. Arend Bonen, Human Health and Nutritional Sciences; Prof. Steve Leeson, chair of the Department of Animal and Poultry Science; Prof. Graeme Morton, History; engineering graduate student Cecille Freeman; and Linda Hawkins, director of the Centre for Families, Work and Well-Being.

The review committee invites input and feedback from the U of G community on Wildeman’s role, particularly in the areas of leadership, administration and management, relationship and partnership building, communications, oversight of the contract with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs and research initiatives at U of G.

Comments should be submitted in writing or via e-mail to Summerlee at president@uoguelph.ca or to any member of the review committee by Feb. 28. All comments will be confidential.
