MSVU is beginning the search for the next President and Vice-Chancellor. Dr. Ramona Lumpkin, CM, is currently the Interim President and Vice-Chancellor. She is a respected leader and university administrator and served as President and Vice-Chancellor for seven years before retiring in 2017. It is with a great deal of gratitude that we acknowledge Ramona’s leadership through our period of transition.
The search for a new president includes opportunities for input from a wide range of representatives from MSVU and the establishment of a Presidential Search Committee, representing all constituencies of the university community including faculty, staff, students and alumni.
When reading through the Presidential Search web page, you will find information on the steps and timing (PDF) that will take place in the Committee’s search process. Additionally, the Terms of Reference (PDF) and the Procedures to Guide Confidential Searches for Senior Admin Positions (PDF) have been added. These documents are guiding the work of the Committee.
Presidential Search Update – September 9, 2021
To the MSVU Community,
I am writing to provide an update on the work of the Presidential Search Committee, in collaboration with Griffith Group, the firm that was chosen to support the search.
The committee recently met to review the input received as a result of their outreach to their respective groups. Thank you to all who participated in a discussion or responded to a survey.
The input from all groups including faculty, staff, students, Board members, alumni, donors and supporters is invaluable to the process to select a new President for the University. In fact, your input has been incorporated into the advertisement that is attached, and is being posted across a number of outlets including our website.
For those who were not able to participate there is still opportunity to do so. Please find a link to a shortened version of the survey. The survey remains confidential and anonymous. The more input that we receive, the more we know that our next President and Vice-Chancellor will accurately represent the MSVU community.
If you have nominations for the role of President and Vice-Chancellor these can be forwarded throughout the duration of the search to email@example.com. Please continue to check the website for updates as we move along.
If you have any question about the process, please do not hesitate to contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chair of Board of Governors and Chair of the Presidential Search Committee
