Members of the Memorial University community,
As your president and vice chancellor pro tempore, I am humbled and appreciative of this opportunity to lead Memorial University. I am committed to serving our community with transparency and collegiality.
The strength of Memorial is its people and the diverse perspectives that we all bring. I want to acknowledge the resilience of everyone in the face of these challenging times.
I am privileged to work with a strong and dedicated leadership team. As we focus on rebuilding and re-engaging across our community, there are key areas where we need to act, including the following:
- prioritizing searches for positions that are currently filled in an interim or acting capacity;
- improving the flow of information with students, faculty and staff;
- involving more of you in our decision-making processes, such as the work of Senate and its committees; and
- building a stronger culture of transparency and openness.
I know that you may have questions and I will be looking for ways to connect with as many of you as possible in the coming weeks.
Please reach out any time via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to working with you.
