Faculty of Education

Dean, Faculty of Education

In accordance with GFC regulations, a Dean Selection Committee has been established for the Faculty of Education.

It is my pleasure to announce to you, the members of the 2016-2017 Dean Selection Committee, Faculty of Education. Please see Committee Membership list, below.

As its first action, the Selection Committee asks for your advice and opinion on the leadership needs of the Faculty in the years ahead and any other key issues. You are urged to express your views on the priorities, current issues, and the future direction of the Faculty. All feedback will be collected on a consultation form, and may be shared with the Selection Committee. To facilitate the Committee’s work, please submit your comments by Wednesday, September 14, 2016.

We encourage you to nominate individuals who you feel would be suitable candidates. In addition, individuals who wish to stand as candidates are invited to apply.

The selection of a Dean is vital to the success of the Faculty. I therefore ask you all to take the time to give some thought to the future of this Faculty. Your views are important to us.

Thank you for your assistance.
