The President and Vice-Presidents establish performance goals on an annual basis. These goals reflect strategic priorities within their respective areas of responsibility in support of the University’s mission. The goals are established following discussion between the President and Vice-Presidents and are reviewed and formally approved by the Human Resources Committee of the Board of Governors. A summary of the agreed performance goals is provided to the Board of Governors on an annual basis and published here.
As part of the University’s commitment to good governance and transparency, summaries of the personal travel and hospitality expenses incurred by the President in undertaking his duties are being made available. The President represents the University at a variety of meetings, conferences and events in order to strengthen and promote relationships within the local community, raise the profile of McMaster with all levels of government and contribute proactively to the debate around the future of higher education. The President also works to maintain a strong connection with McMaster’s alumni community, our external supporters and partners, and foster collaborative relationships with other universities, both within Canada and overseas. Summaries of the personal expenses incurred in undertaking this work will be posted on a quarterly basis. The expenses relate to travel costs and associated meals, accommodation and other expenses organized by trip, together with personal hospitality expenses. The University’s policy on Reimbursements to Individuals for University Business governs the approval and reimbursement process for such expenses.
