Principle, Brampton Campus


Algoma University, established in Sault Ste. Marie in 1965, offers a wide range of degrees and certificates spanning the liberal arts, sciences, and professional disciplines. The university has grown its presence within the province of Ontario through the development of campus locations in Brampton and Timmins. Algoma University, whose Sault Ste. Marie campus is located on the site of the former Shingwauk Indian Residential School, has a special mission to cultivate cross-cultural learning between Indigenous populations and other communities.

With a presence in the heart of downtown Brampton for over 10 years, Algoma has embarked on an ambitious plan to diversify academic programming and double the student population in this location from 500 to 1,000 students over the next three to five years. With the support of the City of Brampton and other external partners, the campus provides a unique urban learning environment in one of Canada’s fastest growing and most diverse cities. In close proximity to Toronto Pearson International Airport, and with easy access to GO and regional transit, the campus is poised to provide GTA residents and others with an exceptional and personalized Algoma post-secondary experience.

Reporting to the President and Vice-Chancellor, the Principal of the Brampton Campus of Algoma University will play a key leadership role in advancing the enrolment growth, expansion, and ongoing operation of this rapidly growing campus. The Principal will be responsible for overseeing all operations at the Brampton campus and ensuring alignment with the overall University mission, vision, policies, and procedures, as well as aligning with the University’s Strategic and Academic Plans.

The Principal is a member of the University’s Senior Executive Team, working alongside the President and Vice-Chancellor, the Provost and Academic Dean, and the Vice President of Finance and Operations on issues related to the University’s academic priorities and the coordinated and integrated delivery of administrative services and community outreach to local government, community groups, private sector, and Indigenous communities. The Principal will promote the growing number of academic programs and services offered by the University at the Brampton campus.
