As a result of the call for nominations issued last week, I am pleased to announce that we have received many nominations for faculty and for management and professional staff to serve on the Presidential Search Committee. Nominations for those positions are now closed.
As announced yesterday, the Board of Governors and the Senates of UBC have agreed to the Terms of Reference for a presidential search committee. As part of that process, faculty members, management & professional staff, and unionized staff from both campuses of UBC are to elect members to the search committee.
I am writing to inform you that the search process for the next president of UBC is now under way. However, first I want to express my most sincere thanks to Interim President Martha Piper for stepping into this very important role, bringing her immense experience and limitless passion for the university.
