Dear Members of the Carleton Community,
As Jerry Tomberlin makes the transition to Provost, I am pleased to announce that Linda Schweitzer has agreed to take on the role of Interim Dean of the Sprott School of Business while we conduct a search for a new Dean. Currently on sabbatical, Dr. Schweitzer will commence a 13-month term commencing on June 1, 2017. I am grateful to Dr. Schweitzer for agreeing to take on this important role. The June 1 start will facilitate the transition of Jerry Tomberlin to his new role as Interim Provost and Vice-President (Academic).
Linda Schweitzer is an Associate Professor in the Sprott School of Business at Carleton University, actively teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. Most notably, she currently teaches Knowledge Management in both the Ottawa and Shanghai Sprott MBA programs, as well as Communications within the Management Development Program for Women. Linda obtained her PhD in Management from Sprott in 2005.
As an active researcher, Linda has published in the areas of alternate work arrangements (telework and virtual teams), strategic human resources management, organizational behavior, women in business and society as well as generations in the workplace. She currently holds a substantial SSHRC Research Grant entitled, “An Examination of Shifting Career Expectations, Experiences, Attitudes, and Values” (with S. Lyons and E.S. Ng). Additionally, Linda is an active member of two Sprott research units: Centre for Information, Technology, Organization and People (CITOP) and Centre for Research and Education on Women and Work (CREWW).
Please join me in congratulating Dr. Schweitzer on her appointment and thanking her for agreeing to take on the position of Interim Dean of the Sprott School of Business during this period of leadership transition for Carleton University.
Dr. Peter Ricketts
Provost and Vice-President (Academic)
