Today I am proud to formally begin my new role as President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of British Columbia.

Farewell to Dr. Martha C. Piper

Last year, Dr. Martha C. Piper returned to UBC as Interim President and Vice-Chancellor. On June 30, she will formally end her second period of leadership at UBC.

Dr. Piper’s passion and dedication have been extraordinary, and her advice to the Board and the senior administration has been invaluable.
