Dates of existence


In 1968, the position of Vice-President Administration was created with the appointment of Brian W. Power. The Vice President Administration was to oversee the following departments: CampusPlanning, Physical Plant, Finance, Personnel and Purchasing (RYERSONIAN 26Sep68). With the death of Brian Power in September, 1970, Don Bazely and John Ezyk were asked to share the position on an acting basis until a permanent replacement could be found. In 1971, George Korey was named Vice President, Administration. With the resignation of Korey in 1977, Tom Sosa assumed the position of Acting Vice President, Administration. In 1978, Sosa was appointed Vice President, Administration. He remained in the position until 1989. With the appointment of Glyn Harry, Director of Finance, as the new Vice President in 1989, the name of the position became Vice President, Finance and Administration. The functions of Human Resources and Employment Equity were transferred from the Vice President, Finance and Administration to the Vice President, Faculty and Staff Affairs. In 1993, the name of the position reverted back to Vice President Administration with the appointment of Linda Grayson. In 1996, the title of this office was changed again, to Vice President, Administration and Student Affairs. With an internal management restructuring in 1998, the responsibility for Human Resources reverted back to the Vice President, Administration and Student Affairs from the Office of the Vice President, Faculty and Staff Affairs (which consequently became Vice President, Faculty Affairs). For the Vice Presidents' and Associate Vice Presidents' record groups, a decision was made to maintain one group for each Office, regardless of changes in titles and responsibilities over the years. It was felt that it was a preferable means of preserving the historical integrity of each of these executive positions.
