Committee members elected by Senate are: Iain Campbell, Department of Physics and former University provost and vice-president (academic); Ian Duncan, Department of Animal and Poultry Science; Elizabeth Ewan, Department of History; Kendra Holliday, fourth-year student in the Bachelor of Commerce Program; Matt Routley, doctoral student in the Department of Botany; and Tracey Alberico, senior advisor in Employee Relations, Human Resources Department. Committee members selected by the Board of Governors are: Rita Burak, vice-chair of the Board; Douglas Derry, vice-chair of the Board; and Michael Walsh, chair designate of the Board. Dr. Walsh, a U of G alumnus, will chair the Presidential Selection Committee.
Under the University of Guelph Act, the Board of Governors is ultimately responsible for appointing a president. Simon Cooper, outgoing Chair of the Board, has asked that a successor be in place by the late summer of 2003, at the end of Dr. Rozanski's term.
