August 2020

The Geldart Group was hired to act as the institution’s search firm working with the search committee to develop the executive brief and the job advertisement. The posting for the Provost and Vice-President Academic was placed online with major higher education publications and websites (University Affairs; CAUT; Academica; SWAAC; Indigenous Link; Chronicle of Higher Education; Times Higher Education) as well as USask’s own website.

As of August, close to a hundred points of contact have been made regarding the search and a number of applications have been received and reviewed by the search committee.  The committee will continue to refine the applications and will pursue a number of opportunities to vet candidates such as: discussions of resumes,  interviews with the search consultant, reference checks, virtual interviews, and in-person interviews.
