About the committee

Concordia’s president Alan Shepard’s first term ends on July 31, 2017 and he has confirmed that he will be seeking a second term.

At Concordia, when a president seeks renewal of his or her term, Concordia’s Board of Governors establishes the President Evaluation Committee. The committee conducts a review and makes a recommendation as to whether the President’s performance warrants a second term.

There are 12 people on the committee. They are external members of the Board of Governors, faculty, staff and students. This is a call for nominations of staff members to join the committee.
