Lisa Philipps, provost and vice-president academic, issues the following announcement to the York University community:

I am very pleased to launch York University’s multi-year Faculty Complement Renewal Strategy. The strategy outlines:

  • understanding what high-level principles should guide the University, and what outcomes we should strive for, as we invest in faculty complement renewal over the next five to 10 years;
  • informing the annual, Faculty-based complement planning process with an appreciation of longer-term goals for the University; and
  • clarifying how best to build the complement needed to achieve academic priorities as expressed in key planning documents including the University Academic Plan and Strategic Research Plan.

This strategy builds on the sector and literature study that was undertaken, the resulting papers, and extensive feedback received from individuals and groups consulted in person, online and through email over the last year and a half.
