The University of Saskatchewan values diversity, and Aboriginal engagement is a strategic priority.


We are looking for a dean who will lead the University of Saskatchewan’s largest college towards fulfilling its tremendous potential.

The College of Arts and Science is unique in Canada in that it offers courses in sciences, social sciences, humanities and fine arts, all within one college. Prioritizing the student experience, research excellence and hands-on learning in the community means our more than 7,000 arts and science students have a range of opportunities contained within one administrative structure.

Our successful candidate will join a strong university leadership team, reporting to the provost and vice-president academic. She or he will have proven academic leadership skills, an accomplished research and teaching record, fundraising skills, financial acumen and the ability to foster collaborative relationships with internal and external partners.

Established in 1908, the college has a long and proud history, and our new dean will build on this tradition, enabling us to grow in areas of strategic importance to both the college and the university: working towards reconciliation and improved engagement with Aboriginal communities, strengthening connections across traditional disciplinary boundaries and fostering a dynamic environment that inspires original thinking in teaching and research.

We know the College of Arts and Science is uniquely positioned to think differently about the world’s challenges, both today and into the future. We want a dean whose passion for knowledge motivates those around them to continually pursue discovery, and bring diverse perspectives together to find innovative solutions.
