Biographical history

The current position of Associate Vice President, Academic, established in 1995, should not be confused with that of Associate Vice President, Faculty Affairs, which was also known as Associate Vice President, Academic for the period 1982-1989. Hence, the records of the two abovementioned positions are arranged in distinct groups (No. 654 and 551) and cover distinct periods (1995 to the present for Group 654; 1982 to the present for group 551). Both groups are named on the basis of the current titles of the positions, regardless of previous designations. See the description of Group 654 for further historical information. In 1994, at the recommendation of the research committee of Academic Council, a decision was made to create the new position of Associate Vice President, Academic "to lead the establishment of the research mission that is part of Ryerson's university mandate" [Forum 3dec94] and to oversee scholarly, research and creative acitivity. On September 1, 1995, Dr. Kevin Goheen, an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Academic Advisor to the President at Carlton University, commenced his appointment as the new Associate Vice President Academic. The following year, on October 1, 1996, Dr. Goheen left Ryerson to pursue other career opportunities. Dr. Rena Mendelson, a faculty member and administrator with the School of Nutrition, was named Acting Associate Vice President, Academic. From 1997 to 1999, Dr. Mendelson served as Interim Associate Vice President, Academic. In 1999, Dr. Mendelson was officially appointed Associate Vice President, Academic, for a five-year term starting July 1. In 2001, Dr. Judith Sandys, former Dean, Faculty of Community Services 1993-2000, was appointed Associate Vice President, Academic (Research and International Development), for a five-year term effective July 1. In 2006, at the end of Dr. Sandys' term, the Associate Vice President's position is renamed Vice President Research and Innovation. Dr. Anastasios (Tas) Venetsanopoulos assumes the position. Records Group 654 is therefore closed as an active group and replaced by new Group 910, which reflects the different name and responsibilities.
