Three Candidates For CPES Dean to Give Public Lectures

The selection committee for dean of the College of Physical and Engineering Science will present three candidates to the University community this week. All presentations will take place from 9 to 10 a.m. in Room 113 of the MacNaughton Building.

Candidates will give a 20-minute public presentation outlining their background, experience and accomplishments that are particularly relevant to being dean of the College of Physical and Engineering Science at U of G, and will talk about the challenges and opportunities facing colleges of science and engineering in the next ten years. A 30-minute question and answer period will follow the presentation. The sessions will be audio-taped; the tapes will be available by calling Carol Sherman at Ext. 53846 or at the Provost’s Office, Room 424 of the University Centre.

Rob Lipson, a chemistry professor at the University of Western Ontario will give a public presentation June 7. Tony Vannelli, an associate dean in the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Waterloo, will speak June 8. John Berlinsky, a professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at McMaster University, will speak June 9.

A brief biography for each candidate is available online and full curricula vitae is available through Sherman.

Members of the community are encouraged to attend the public lectures and to provide written comments to the selection committee. Comments must be received no later than June 19 and can be directed to the committee by mail or e-mail. All comments will be held in strict confidence and will be shared with the committee in full, provided the writer is identified. Anonymous comments will not be reviewed.
