Agnes Etherington Art Centre Review
Laeeque Daneshmend, Deputy Provost, announces the initiation of a comprehensive external review of the Agnes Etherington Art Centre (AEAC).
The purpose of the external review is to examine:
- the present state and future direction and priorities of the AEAC
- its role as an integral partner in the Queen’s student learning experience and as a significant resource for the local, provincial and national arts communities
- the structures for community engagement
- the governance structure
- the profile and mandate of the director of the AEAC
In accordance with past practice, the AEAC will be asked to prepare a reflective self-study document, which will be shared with the external review team. It is anticipated that the site visit of the external reviewers will be scheduled for the fall of 2013, at which time there will be opportunity for them to meet with members of the Queen’s and Kingston communities.
Members of the university community are invited to comment, in writing, on the present state and future prospects of the AEAC by July 1, 2013. Letters should be submitted to the Office of the Provost, Suite 353 Richardson Hall, or via email to Peggy Watkin, Senior Associate.
