A message from UFV Board of Governors Chair Barry Delaney
Dear UFV community,
UFV President & Vice-Chancellor Dr. Mark Evered has advised the Board of Governors of his intention to retire at the end of his second term, effective June 30, 2017. The Board is grateful for the leadership and vision Dr. Evered has brought to his role as President & Vice-Chancellor. We look forward to serving with him through the next 16 months as we plan for this transition of office.
As set out in the University Act, the Board will lead the search for a new President & Vice-Chancellor with procedures approved by Senate. You are welcome to read the procedures document online here.
The Board will establish a Presidential Search Committee to consider candidates and make a recommendation to the Board. This committee will consist of 13 voting members, including seats selected by the Board, Senate, Student Union Society Executive and UFV Alumni Association.
The Executive Committee of the Board has chosen a search firm, Boyden Global Executive Search, to guide the Board and the Presidential Search Committee. The search firm will assist with stakeholder consultations, including public forums and an online survey, to provide all members of the university community opportunities to contribute.
I welcome and encourage you to participate in the search for UFV’s next President & Vice-Chancellor, and to watch for upcoming announcements as this process unfolds.
Barry Delaney, Chair
UFV Board of Governors
