I am pleased to advise you that at the meeting of Senate last night, the motions contained in the Final Report of the Faculty Structure Task Force were approved. This means that the next stage of the academic structure initiative will proceed. The Phase 2 Task Force on Academic Structure will be established by the Vice President, Academic and members appointed in consultation with the Senate Committee on University Priorities. We will begin the work of the Phase 2 Task Force early in January.

The Phase 2 Task Force will send out a detailed community announcement in early January outlining its membership, mandate, plan of action, timelines for submissions and processes for community engagement. I look forward to working with all members of the University community on this important initiative.


Dr. John Waterhouse
Vice-President, Academic and Provost
