1995: Academic Planning and Research Unit re-named University Planning Office. 2003 (July 1): Paul Stenton is apponted to the newly created position of Associate Vice President, University Planning. "I am pleased to inform the community that Dr. Paul Stenton has been appointed to the newly created position of Associate Vice President, University Planning, effective July 1, 2003 reporting to the Provost and Vice President Academic. Dr. Stenton has served the University as the Director of University Planning since September, 1999, and as such has worked closely with the senior management and academic administrators in the development of plans and policies on a wide range of strategic issues in order to guide the University's development and ensure the achievement of its mission. The change in title reflects the importance of this office in the Ryerson structure. During his time at Ryerson, Dr. Stenton has served as chair of the Council on University Planning and Analysis (CUPA), an affiliate of the Council of Ontario Universities, and as the chair of the Operating Revenue and Budget Committee of CUPA. He has served as co-chair of the Ryerson Backfill Committee and has helped develop the double cohort plan for enrolment growth and academic resourcing at Ryerson. Dr. Stenton has a BSc in Economics from Trent University , an MA in Economics from McMaster University and a EdD in Higher Education from the University of Toronto (OISE). He came to Ryerson from his position as Manager of the Finance Unit in the Universities Branch of the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. Prior to that he led the research and policy division of the Ontario Council on University Affairs for a number of years. While at OCUA, he played a lead role in reviewing and overhauling the Ontario university operating grants allocation system that resulted in the introduction of the "corridor funding system" that has been in place for over fifteen years. Dr. Stenton also served as Director of Policy and Research for the Advisory Panel on Future Directions for Postsecondary Education (the Smith Panel) which made policy recommendations to the Government of Ontario on the structure and policies of the Ontario university and college systems. He has a thorough knowledge of operating grants, policies and forecasting in the University sector. I am very pleased that Dr. Stenton will be continuing to serve Ryerson in this new position, and will continue to bring his extensive expertise to the area of University Planning." (Errol Aspevig, Provost and Vice President Academic, to Infoline, 4Sep03)
