The University of Guelph has recommenced its presidential search, naming a presidential selection committee and launching a community survey in support of the search process.
In October 2019, the University had begun a search for its ninth president and vice-chancellor. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, in March 2020 the University’s Board of Governors suspended that search and appointed Dr. Charlotte Yates to lead the University on an interim basis.
Yates will complete her current term as president and vice-chancellor on Aug. 1, 2022.
The Policy on University Appointments requires that a presidential search begin at least one year before the end of the incumbent president’s term, and also provides that the incumbent may be a candidate.
The search process will be led by a Presidential Selection Committee chaired by Shauneen Bruder, chair of the Board of Governors. A full list of members and other information is available on the presidential search website.
