In fall 2021, Principal and Vice-Chancellor Patrick Deane and Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) Mark Green initiated an external review of the Vice-Provost (Teaching and Learning) (VPTL) portfolio to inform the next VPTL.
The following areas:
- The breadth and scope of practice in the teaching and learning portfolio
- The resources and structures that support the portfolio
- The portfolio’s relationship to other units, including the Center for Teaching and Learning
- Addressing Systemic Racism: How to Invest in the University’s Strategy, Commitment to Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Indigeneity, and the Declaration of Commitment
The review was undertaken by Simon Bates, Associate Provost, Teaching and Learning, University of British Columbia; John Doerksen, acting Provost and Vice-President (Academic), Western University; and Arig al Shaibah, Associate Vice-President, Equity and Inclusion, McMaster University.
Members of the Queen’s community have been invited to comment and learn from a wide range of stakeholders including Queen’s faculties, schools, student governments, and shared service units. In their report, the reviewers made a series of recommendations on strengthening the VPTL’s portfolio, including the Queen’s strategy, future growth and development opportunities, positioning the VPTL to support Queen’s strategy, and more.
A summary of the review team’s report and recommendations, and the Principal’s and Provost’s response to the report, is available on the Office of the Provost website. We would like to thank the review team for their hard work and excellent insights. Comments about the report can be sent to [email protected].
