SFU Past Vice-Presidents Academic

In SFU's first years, all Faculty deans and senior administrators reported directly to the President. Planning for the establishment of a Vice-President's Office to oversee academic matters began in the late 1960s and two faculty members served as temporary Acting Vice-Presidents from 1968-1970.

The Office was formally established on September 1, 1970.
