The Office of the Vice President Academic and Provost commissioned an external review of the Peter Wall Institute of Advanced Studies in late 2019. The Terms of Reference for this review included a request to investigate and make recommendations on the Institute’s structures and governance (both academic and financial). The external review team included four outstanding international experts with extensive expertise in the governance of Institutes for Advanced Study.
The report of the external review committee was submitted in January 2020 and a joint response from the Interim Director of the Institute and the Board of Trustees was completed in November 2020. This response outlines specific steps that have already been taken, are planned, or are in discussion to address the recommendations made in the external review.
