To all Members of the Carleton Community,

I am pleased to announce the constitution of the advisory search committee for the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Design.

Thank you to all who submitted your names and/or forwarded nominations for membership on this committee. Executive search consultant Laverne Smith, from Laverne Smith & Associates Inc., will assist the committee. Our first meeting was last week and we will meet again in the fall in order to prepare a recommendation for the president in the winter semester. The intended start date for the new dean is July 1, 2019.

The committee invites members of the Carleton community to offer information through a brief online survey by June 20, 2018 that will help to inform the process. The committee will treat all comments received in strictest confidence.

We will continue to provide you with updates as the search progresses.
