Queen’s University is seeking to appoint a Provost and Deputy Vice-Chancellor.

It is important that our Provost and Deputy Vice-Chancellor displays visible leadership to our faculties and professional services and builds positive relationships internally and externally.

This is a significant moment in the history of our university, and an exciting time to join the Queen’s University community.
