Amidst all the pain and havoc it has caused and continues to wreak, the pandemic has forced organizations of all kinds to rethink the future. Postsecondary education is no exception.
In this unique and difficult time, Seneca has leaned into the challenges of and lessons from the pandemic, and is embracing opportunities to renew our strategic direction, programs and operations.
With the retirement of the incumbent, Seneca is looking for a chief academic officer to provide leadership, inspiration and direction to the academic team as Seneca emerges from the pandemic as an even stronger leader in higher education.
Working with Senior Executive colleagues, the Vice-President Academic (VPA) brings innovative and creative energy to fulfill the unchanging core mission of providing a great polytechnic education to Seneca students.
Principal among the commitments of the renewed Seneca are becoming an equitable Seneca, a sustainable Seneca and a more virtual Seneca that features more online and hybrid education to complement face-to-face teaching and learning.
Alongside students, faculty, staff and administrators, the VPA will embrace those goals to lead continued change and innovation across the range of Seneca’s postsecondary and non-postsecondary full-time and part-time academic programs and services.
The VPA will encourage and support the accelerated shift to more virtual teaching and learning activities while responding to new opportunities created by the upheavals of the pandemic era, and the fast-forwarding of trends established well before COVID-19 hit.
Reporting to the President, the VPA will be the lead support to the Board of Governors’ Academic Planning and Student Affairs Committee.
Seneca requires a proven academic leader who is forward-thinking and collaborative, embraces a student-centred approach and challenges the status quo.
