Academic Structure Initiative: Interim Report #8 on the Faculty of Health Sciences

February 14, 2014 — 


The following is a letter sent to faculty and staff from Joanne Keselman, Vice-President (Academic) and Provost


Dear Colleagues:

I am writing to update you on the status of the transition and implementation activities to establish a new Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Manitoba.

Since my last communiqué, a structure has been put in place to guide the implementation process.  This structure includes an Implementation Steering Committee, a Council of Deans (who are core members of the Steering Committee) and a number of sub-committees made up of representatives from each College/School.   These sub-committees will provide advice on the transition and implementation activities and include the following:

  • Governance/Bylaws;
  • Human Resources/Finance;
  • Students / Student Support Services;
  • Academic Affairs;
  • Research/Graduate Studies;
  • Aboriginal Services;
  • Faculty Development;
  • Inter-Professional Education;
  • Communications; and
  • Systems Infrastructure.

To provide continuous information on the implementation progress, a newly established Faculty of Health Sciences transition website has been developed.  Committee and sub-committee membership listings are now available on this website.  I would encourage to you to continue to visit this website for periodic updates.

I would like to acknowledge the work ahead of the Council of Deans and the respective implementation sub-committee teams and thank them for making time to move this exciting opportunity forward.  As always, I would encourage faculty, staff and students to engage in the implementation process and welcome the opportunity to speak to members of our community.
