Nominees Sought for Prioritization Task Force
September 13, 2012 - Campus Bulletin
The University seeks nominations from staff, faculty and students for candidate members to serve on the Program Prioritization Task Force. The task force is a key component of the University’s Program Prioritization Process (PPP), which involves assessing all academic and non-academic programs and services as part of a University-wide initiative to identify and focus on U of G’s strengths.
The task force will be composed of 21 members of the University community (faculty, staff and students) who will perform the critical role of reviewing and ranking program information submitted by units, and then ranking those programs in a report.
The task force will include up to nine members from current or past chairs of the Senate standing committees, a minimum of five faculty and five staff members selected through a University-wide nomination process, and two students. The students — one undergraduate and one graduate — will apply for special internship positions and will have full voting and membership rights and responsibilities.
All nominations will be reviewed by the Senate Bylaws Committee, which has experience in ensuring representative composition. A slate of candidates will then be forwarded to the president for consideration and appointment.
Nomination and application forms and detailed information about the task force membership criteria are available online at: http://www.uoguelph.ca/vpacademic/planning/. Nominations are due by 4 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 27.
