The current term of the President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of British Columbia, Professor Santa J. Ono, expires on August 14, 2021. The Board is required to determine, prior to the final year of Professor Ono’s first term, whether it wishes to reappoint him to a second five-year term.
The Executive Committee of the Board of Governors and Professor Ono agreed that the President and Vice-Chancellor shall be considered for reappointment, and a Presidential Reappointment Committee was established to review the performance of Professor Ono (and the University under his leadership), and provide a report and recommendation to the Board of Governors by July 2020.
The Presidential Reappointment Committee is broadly representative and comprises:
|Elected members of the Board of Governors:|
|Government-appointed members of the Board of Governors:|
Broad-based consultation (including members of faculty, students and staff, on both campuses, and on- and off-campus individuals and organizations) has taken place. The Committee also approached student leaders, the UBC Faculty Association and union leaders representing UBC personnel, Indigenous leaders, alumni, donors, business and community leaders, certain Senators, Deans, senior members of the Administration, community leaders, members of government and other post-secondary leaders, to solicit their input. The deadline for comments was June 15, 2020.
We greatly value the community’s engagement in this process.
Thank you very much,
On behalf of the Presidential Reappointment Committee:
Vice-Chair and Interim Chair, UBC Board of Governors
