Vice-President, Research and International - Review Process

Dr. Joy Johnson’s initial five-year term as Simon Fraser University's Vice-President, Research and International will end on August 31, 2019.  Dr. Johnson has indicated her wish to be considered for re-appointment.  In accordance with Policy GP 29, Search Committees for Vice-Presidents and Associate Vice-Presidents, I am therefore implementing the required process for such consideration. 

The review process for the Vice-President, Research and International involves a high degree of consultation, with input from the campus community playing a very important role in the Search Committee’s deliberations.  

In the interests of obtaining the broadest possible input from across the University, the Committee invited all interested parties to submit an assessment of Dr. Johnson’s performance in her capacity as Vice-President, Research and International. The period for receiving input is now closed. 

Open Forum

All members of the university community were invited to attend an open forum with Dr. Johnson.  This forum included a presentation by Dr. Johnson followed by a question and answer session.

Date: Friday, January 26, 2018
Time: 9:00-10:20 a.m.
Place: Saywell Hall, 10041
