The Code of Conduct for Members of the UBC Board of Governors defines standards and makes related provisions for the conduct of Governors with a view to affirming the integrity of the Governors and the Board in discharging their responsibilities to the University.
The current Code of Conduct is posted on the Guidelines / Rules section of the University Counsel website.
Each Governor shall observe the responsibilities, duties and standard of care which are implied by the University Act and section 120 of the Business Corporations Act (R.S.B.C. 1996, c.62), as amended. Nothing in the Code is intended to diminish these obligations.
Members of the Board of Governors shall manage and supervise the affairs of UBC according to the University Act and the laws of British Columbia.
A Governor shall act honestly and in good faith and in the best interests of the University and shall exercise the care, diligence and skill of a reasonably prudent person.
Conflict of Interest
Each Governor takes all reasonable steps to avoid conflicts of interest and uses their best personal judgment in assessing whether or not any transaction, relationship or opportunity involving the Governor (or a person whom is a ‘Related Person’ to the Governor) gives rise to a conflict of interest.
