Brock faculty call for open search for new president

June 16, 2015

The Brock University Faculty Association (BUFA) has launched an online campaign to promote an open search for the institution’s next president. BUFA has called for public talks by any short-listed candidates as well as for opportunities for members of the campus community to provide feedback to the Advisory Committee on the Presidency, which is conducting the search. BUFA says that an open search will demonstrate the university’s commitment to transparency and shared governance. However, the Advisory Committee has argued that open searches are rare in Canada and could limit the number of applicants.
