Dean, College of Law, University of Saskatchewan

Tue, 2015-08-04 13:29 -- manager

The College of Law at the University of Saskatchewan is looking for a dean who will build on the college’s proud history with a commitment to excellence.

We’re proud of our past success, and we always look for opportunities to grow stronger.

Established in 1912, the U of S College of Law is the oldest university law school in Western Canada. The college is known for its pre-eminence in transnational commercial law, environment and sustainable resources, and Aboriginal law, and our excellence in teaching, research and innovation helps us produce skilled graduates who go on to succeed at home and around the world. Thanks in part to its close relationship with the Saskatchewan legal profession, the college opened a new expansion in 2008—the first LEED Gold building in Saskatoon.

Reporting to the provost and vice-president academic, the successful candidate, as a key member of the university’s leadership, will be an accomplished and visionary scholar, educator, communicator and leader with a history of successful administration. He or she will understand the fundamental importance of collaboration, teamwork and relationship building with a range of internal and external partners. We constantly strive to achieve even more. We are looking for a dean with big ideas who has the ability to bring them to fruition. We want our success as a college to translate to success for our students, alumni and partners, who will shape the future of the law in Canada and beyond.

The University of Saskatchewan is strongly committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace that empowers all employees to reach their full potential. All members of the university community share a responsibility for developing and maintaining an environment in which differences are valued and inclusiveness is practiced. The university welcomes applications from those who will contribute to the diversity of our community. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be given priority.
