Presidential Search Survey

This survey has been developed to assist you in providing feedback. The survey is anonymous, however, feedback will be classified based on status (graduate or undergraduate), by Faculty, and by campus. The Committee will not be able to identify survey participants or link results with individuals. Survey results will be provided to members of the Joint Nominating Committee in aggregated form only.




Greetings, all UNB students.



As you are aware, The University of New Brunswick is engaged in the search for its next President and Vice–Chancellor, and the Joint Nominating Committee for the Office of President is intent on conducting a thorough and comprehensive search.  We are pleased to take this opportunity to encourage you as a student to share your views with us.


The Committee has launched the presidential Search Website to provide updates to the UNB Community throughout the search:


Consultations will be a key part of the search process as the Committee refines the ideal candidate profile for the new President and Vice–Chancellor. As part of shaping this profile, we are particularly interested to hear your views on:


  • The short-term (2-5 years) and long-term (5-10 years) opportunities and challenges for the University


  • The priorities for the next President and Vice–Chancellor in the first 12 to 18 months in the role; and


  • The most important experiential and leadership competencies that the next President and Vice–Chancellor will need to be successful.


As part of this comprehensive consultation process, the committee is asking you to share your input and feedback with the Search Committee through this online survey: Presidential Search Survey


In addition to the online survey, the committee is asking to meet with members of the student executive over the summer and will be holding town hall sessions open to all students early in the fall term.


We look forward to hiring the next great leader for UNB who will build on our long history of success as an institution. We appreciate your support in this important search and look forward to reporting back to you as the search progresses.

Chair of the Joint Nominating Committee
