A message from Ross Langford, Chair, Chancellor Search Committee; Fred Withers, Chair, alumni UBC Board of Directors
Please note: This message is sent on behalf of the UBC Alumni Association (alumni UBC).
As you are aware, UBC is searching for a new Chancellor as the Honourable Steven Point is stepping down from his role this year.
The Chancellor is the senior statesperson of the university and serves as the titular head. This role advocates for the vision of the university, and plays an essential ambassadorial role in strengthening UBC’s relationship with key stakeholders, alumni and the community the university serves. The Chancellor is the chair of the convocation, confers degrees granted by UBC, and is a member, ex officio, of the Board of Governors, Vancouver Senate, Okanagan Senate, Council of Senates and the alumni UBC Board of Directors. The position is voluntary.
At this stage of the process, we are seeking input from students, faculty and staff.
