Among a series of initiatives to strengthen Ontario’s public postsecondary sector, the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) has launched a process to establish strategic mandate agreements with each of Ontario’s 44 colleges and universities “that will strongly inform future decisions, including allocation decisions and program approvals.
As part of that process, MTCU has requested that the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO) establish a peer review panel to evaluate the mandate submissions in terms of their “ability to achieve significant improvements in productivity, quality and affordability through both innovation and differentiation.” The panel members are:
Leslie Church, Global Communications and Public Affairs, Google Canada
John Davies, President Emeritus, Humber College
Richard DiCerni, Former Deputy Minister, Industry Canada
Cindy Hazell, Former VP Academic, Seneca College
Chaviva Hosek, Former President, Canadian Institute for Advanced Research
Gilles Patry, President & CEO, Canada Foundation for Innovation
Richard Rhoda, Executive Director, Tennessee Higher Education Commission
Michael Stevenson, President Emeritus, Simon Fraser University
David Trick, President, David Trick & Associates
David Turpin, President, University of Victoria
The peer review panel will identify those colleges and universities “whose submissions demonstrate the greatest ability to serve as lead institutions those that provide the most compelling and promising visions, mandate statements and plans that advance government policies, objectives and goals…The lead institutions selected through this exercise would be the first to receive funding to pursue their mandates starting as early as 2013-14.”
To inform MTCU’s selection of lead institutions, HEQCO will provide its final appraisals to government in February 2013.
