JHI Advisory Board 2021-2022

The Advisory Board meets five or six times during each academic year. Its purpose is to advise the Director on major questions of orientation and vision for the Jackman Humanities Institute, including policies, programs, and general oversight on all activities. The Advisory Board connects the Jackman Humanities Institute with the humanities departments and their faculty and students across the University of Toronto.  This committee is composed of senior faculty members and department chairs from the humanities disciplines, representatives from the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM), the University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC), the Faculty of Arts and Science, and other faculties. Members are usually appointed for three-year terms.
