Daniel Woolf has been reappointed to serve a second term as principal of Queen's University, the institution announced on Monday.
The decision to reappoint Dr. Woolf, an alumnus of Queen's, came after reviewing more than 100 names submitted from faculty, students, alumni and donors, the university said. Dr. Woolf's second term will conclude in June, 2019.
"The Board-Senate committee reviewing the principalship believes that Daniel has two key attributes Queen's values in a Principal; he is an outstanding academic and a thoughtful, strategic leader," Barbara Palk, chair of the board of trustees, said in a statement. "He was highly receptive to the Queen's community's feedback on his first term, and is committed to collaboration and accountability in planning for the next five years."
Dr. Woolf welcomed a second term as principal. "This is a time of great challenges for Canadian universities, and great opportunities for Queen's to lead the way as one of the nation's top institutions," he said.
