To: All UBC students, faculty and staff
The term of Vice President, Human Resources, Lisa Castle comes to an end on March 31, 2013. I have determined that I will consider Ms. Castle’s reappointment. A committee has been established to make a recommendation to the Board of Governors concerning the possible reappointment of Ms. Castle.
The Vice President, responsible to the President, provides strategic leadership to the Human Resources portfolio to accomplish the vision, commitments, goals, and actions as set out in Place and Promise: The UBC Plan, and UBC’s Focus on People, the human resources plan.
The Vice President provides oversight for a complex portfolio focusing on increasing UBC’s position as an employer of choice for outstanding faculty and staff.
The following have been appointed or elected to the Committee:
– Stephen Toope, Chair
– Gerry Karr [Board of Governors]
– Charles Shuler [Dean]
– Katherine Beaumont [Staff]
– Richard Sullivan [Faculty]
– Linda McKnight [Portfolio]
– Pauline Brandes [Portfolio, Okanagan]
– Patricia Stevens, Secretary
The Committee is entering into a consultative process to define the main challenges of the portfolio, and in that context, to identify the main needs of the portfolio over the next five years. Following the deliberations of the Committee, I will make a recommendation to the Board of Governors concerning the possible reappointment of Ms. Castle.
Please write or email the Committee in confidence through Patricia Stevens, Office of the President at 604-822-0663 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to make a written submission to the Committee. Submissions should be made no later than February 8, 2013.
I strongly encourage you to participate in this important reappointment process.
Stephen J. Toope
