Carleton University is beginning the search for a new Vice-President Finance and Administration (VPFA).

In accordance with the Appointment Guidelines for the Vice-President (Finance and Administration), the Board of Governors has asked Senate for assistance in the nomination and election of faculty members and students to serve on the Advisory Committee on the VPFA.

The Advisory Committee will commence its work in early Summer of 2024 and will be active throughout the search process, which will continue for approximately six months. Committee members will need to be available during this time.

This is a Call for Nominations for TWO full-time academic staff members to serve on the Advisory Committee on the Vice-President (Finance and Administration). 

  • Nominees must be active, full-time faculty members in an academic unit of the university at the level of Full Professor, Associate Professor, Assistant Professor or Instructor, or must be professional librarians employed at Carleton.
  • Faculty members must not be on leave now or planning a leave before the work of the committee is complete.
  • At least one confirmed member must hold the rank of Full Professor.

Committee meetings will commence as early as June 2024.
