The Board of Governors is in the process of identifying the University of Windsor’s next President and Vice-Chancellor.
A Presidential Search Committee has been formed with the mandate to manage the search process and bring forward a recommendation to the Board of Governors of a preferred candidate. The executive search firm Knightsbridge Robertson Surrette has been retained to assist the Search Committee with this important task with Anna Stuart and Katherine Frank as the lead consultants.
The mandate and profile of the next President are outlined in the Executive Brief. The key priorities for the next President were refined and the ideal candidate profile developed following extensive consultation with key stakeholders who were asked to provide feedback on questions listed below:
What are the local, provincial, national or global trends that will have the greatest impact for the University of Windsor over the next five to ten years?
What are the key opportunities and challenges facing the University over the coming five to ten years?
What are the greatest strengths or most important features of the University of Windsor that the next President and Vice-Chancellor should preserve or enhance?
What are the key priorities for the new President and Vice-Chancellor in the first term?
What qualifications, experience and/or professional and personal attributes should the President and Vice-Chancellor possess to be successful?
