World Renowned Urban Expert To Become 16th President Of The University Of Toronto

TORONTO, March 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Meric Gertler, a world-renowned expert on urban issues, will be the next President of the University of Toronto, Richard Nunn, Chair of the University's Governing Council, announced today.

The appointment, confirmed by the Council this morning, is for a five-year term and is the result of an international search that began in June of 2012. Gertler will become the 16 th President in the 186-year history of the University.  He will succeed David Naylor, President since 2005.

Professor Gertler has been dean of the Faculty of Arts and Science - U of T's largest and most diverse academic division - since December 1, 2008. He joined the Faculty in the Department of Geography in 1983 after receiving his doctorate from Harvard University.  A Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and a member of the Academy of Social Sciences in the United Kingdom, he is the author, co-author or co-editor of more than 80 scholarly publications and six books. His academic work focuses on the economies of cities, the urban foundations of innovation, and the role of creativity, culture and diversity in urban life.

" Dean Gertler has an outstanding track record at the University for academic excellence and strong administrative leadership," said Nunn. "We are pleased those qualities will now be put to use in a new role as President."

"After an extensive international search, the fact we were able to find someone of Professor Gertler's stature right here is a testament to the depth of this great University," added David Wilson, chair of the Presidential Search Committee.

Professor Gertler said he is deeply honoured to be appointed to this position.
