Dean, SFU Beedie School of Business
Established in 1965, Simon Fraser University is ranked as Canada’s #1 comprehensive university, and #1 globally for impact on sustainable cities and communities. A place where innovative education, cutting-edge research, and community outreach intersect, SFU aims to be Canada’s leading engaged university. With thriving urban campuses in BC’s three largest cities – Vancouver, Surrey, and Burnaby – SFU acknowledges the Coast Salish peoples, on whose traditional territories its campuses stand. By recognizing these unceded territories, SFU aspires to create space for reconciliation through dialogue and decolonizing practices.
SFU’s Beedie School of Business believes in the power of business to spark ideas, fuel innovation, and advance society. Home to over 3,500 undergraduate and 800 graduate students, the School is a recognized trailblazer in offering relevant, experiential, and student-centered programming, including Canada’s first Executive MBA program and North America’s only EMBA in Indigenous Business Leader-ship. SFU Beedie is a top-ranked research school, is among the 1% of business schools accredited by both AACSB and EQUIS, and is a signatory to the UN’s Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME). Focusing on three strategic pillars – global outlook; innovation and entrepre¬neur-ship; and social responsibility – SFU Beedie combines dynamic teaching and learning, global-class research for the knowledge economy, and a tri-campus model that fosters and maintains connections with BC’s culturally diverse urban communities and their economies.
The next Dean of SFU Beedie will be a respected scholar with a background of successful strategic academic leadership, a deep commitment to the principles of equity and diversity, and a proven record of promoting inclusive excellence in all its forms.
A relationship builder and a champion of lifelong learning, the Dean will engage students, staff, and faculty in ensuring SFU Beedie continues to offer leading-edge, transformative learning opportunities that develop innovative, socially responsible, globally minded leaders who are ready for the world.
The University’s Strategic Vision adopts diversity as an underlying principle and pledges that “SFU will foster a culture of inclusion and mutual respect.” SFU is committed to ensuring that no individual is denied access to employment opportunities for reasons unrelated to ability or qualifications. Consistent with this principle, SFU will advance the interests of underrepresented members of the work force, specifically Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities, racialized persons, and women; embrace gender and sexual diversity; ensure that equal opportunity is afforded to all who seek employment at the University; and treat all employees equitably. Candidates who belong to underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply. SFU encourages applications from all qualified applicants; however, Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be given priority.
Under the authority of the University Act, personal information that is required by the University for academic appointments will be collected. For further details see: http://www.sfu.ca/vpacademic/Faculty_Openings/Collection_Notice.html
