Looking towards the future, the university's 2020 Vision establishes three key pillars for the future: 1) access, affordability and excellence; 2) community engagement; and 3) diversity and inclusion.
Based upon the selected candidate's qualifications and experience, the classification of the position will either be a Director or an Associate Director.
