New Presidential Search Committee video offers insight into the search for York’s next president

In a new video released Tuesday, Feb. 21 to the York University community Rick Waugh, chair of the Presidential Search Committee and chair of the Board of Governors, joins Presidential Search Committee members to discuss the values of York University’s culture that are guiding the search for the next president.

York undergraduate student Dalubuhle Ndlovu, who is enrolled in Human Rights and Equity Studies, and Faculty of Education Associate Professor Roopa Trilokekar, join in the discussion.

In December 2015, York University embarked on an extensive and comprehensive search for the next president. The search is being conducted by a 14-member committee comprised of representatives from the University Senate and the Board of Governors and is guided by the Principles to Govern Presidential Search Committees, which was established in 2005 by these two governance bodies.

The search process included broad consultations across the University community about York’s strategic needs and the specific attributes the next president should possess in order to meet those needs.
