I am pleased to announce that, effective February 1, 2022, Dr. Rehan Sadiq will serve as Provost and Vice-President, Academic pro tem, for UBC Okanagan.

Dr. Sadiq is a professor of Civil Engineering and a Distinguished University Scholar, and currently holds the position of Executive Associate Dean in the School of Engineering at UBC Okanagan. He is also a co-lead of the Life Cycle Management Laboratory at UBC.

Dr. Sadiq holds a PhD in Civil Engineering from Memorial University and has been a registered Professional Engineer in BC since 2010. He is also a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering, Canadian Society of Civil Engineering, Engineers Canada and Engineering Institute of Canada. Dr. Sadiq is a world-leading researcher in the areas of asset management of water supply systems, environmental risk analysis and lifecycle assessment of built environment, with over 600 peer-reviewed publications to his name.

I am very pleased that Dr. Sadiq has accepted this position and will bring his considerable experience to the role while we search for a new Provost and Vice-President, Academic, for UBC Okanagan.

I would also like to thank Dr. Ananya Mukherjee Reed for her leadership, expertise and passion over the course of her time as Provost and Vice-President, Academic, at UBC Okanagan. Her many significant contributions will continue to shape our campus and the university for the better for years to come.
