This is a reminder that the search committee for Piluwitahasuwin (Assistant Vice-President Indigenous Engagement) has selected two candidates who will present to the university community next week.

Members of the search committee are very pleased that the candidates have agreed to take part in an open process that will allow interested members of the university community to become familiar with and provide feedback on each candidate. This process will include an opportunity to hear each candidate speak, and to ask questions. The personal information for the candidates has been posted to a secure page on the UNB website and will require a UNB login ID to access. Please keep in mind that the candidates have entrusted their information to us for the purpose of this search. The Committee asks that you treat candidate information with appropriate discretion and due regard for confidentiality.

An open session will be held with each candidate for interested members of the university community. Those not able to be present at the beginning may feel free to join the session at any time. These open sessions have been scheduled as follows:

Saint John campus

Cheyenne Joseph: Monday, Aug. 20, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m., Oland Hall, Room 104
Amanda Reid Rogers: Wednesday, Aug. 22, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m., Oland Hall, Room 104

Fredericton campus

Cheyenne Joseph: Tuesday, Aug. 21, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m., Wu Conference Centre Auditorium
Amanda Reid Rogers: Thursday, Aug. 23, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m., Wu Conference Centre Auditorium

Please note that these sessions will be recorded and will be available on a secure page on the UNB website for members of the community who are not able to attend the sessions. The videos will be posted shortly following the presentations; they will not be live-streamed.  We encourage you to attend in person, if at all possible.

Providing feedback

The search committee invites you to submit comment and feedback on the candidates.  Please send your written submissions to the search committee in confidence by:

- inter-campus mail to the office of the Vice-President Academic (Fredericton), Room 105 Sir Howard Douglas Hall;
- e-mail to the office of the Vice-President Academic (Fredericton),

The deadline for receipt of written submissions is 4 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 10, 2018.  Submissions will be made available to the members of the committee for consideration in reaching a recommendation for appointment.  The recommendation must be approved by the Board of Governors after which an announcement of the successful candidate will be made to the university community.

Your written submission need not be signed.  If you do not wish to sign your submission, it should be sent as hard copy rather than electronically.  Your letter should be placed in a sealed and unmarked envelope, which is placed inside an outer envelope addressed as set out above, and which must bear your name and signature.  Upon receipt of your submission, the information on the outer envelope will be used to verify you are a member of the UNB community, and that envelope will be discarded.  The inner envelope will be set aside and opened subsequently.  You may of course submit a signed letter or e-mail without the need for the above procedure.  No anonymous submissions will be accepted except as provided above.

We welcome your comment and feedback on each candidate.  Thank you for taking time to participate in this important process.

Piluwitahasuwin (pronounced BILL-WEE-DUH-HUZZ-WIN) is a Wolastoqey word meaning "one who promotes change in a good way toward truth."
