Board governance – listening to your views

On behalf of the UBC Board of Governors, I would like to thank all those who attended the April 14, 2016 meeting to share their views about Board governance.

The Board invited representatives of student, faculty, staff and alumni groups to attend the Board meeting for a discussion on governance. We also welcomed written submissions from any member of the University community.

The Board appreciated the full, frank and thoughtful dialogue, and we will carefully consider all the views and recommendations presented today as we work to strengthen Board governance. In particular, I have asked the Governance Committee to review the submissions in detail and report back in June with recommended actions. Anyone who was unable to attend the meeting can submit comments via email to

On behalf of the Board, I want to reiterate my thanks to all members of the community who have been part of this very important discussion.

Stuart Belkin
Chair, Board of Governors
