VP Academic Portfolio

The VP Academic Portfolio is big. Huge. And very important.


  • Hiring. They interview hundreds of applicants for hundreds of positions, including all the services. That's a spicy meatball, a spicy meatball of hiring.
  • Sits on a lot of external committees, most notably the Directors of University Neighbourhood Association, Teaching and Learning Committees, and everything related to University Town.
  • They spend a lot of time working on campus development issues, as well as issues relating to the way the University operates. In short, they lobby the University on internal matters, like development and, shock, Academics!
