The Board of Governors meets in accordance with the annual calendar framework approved in February 2021. Board of Governors and Standing Committee meetings are generally scheduled for the full day.
Open & Closed Parts of Meetings
The Board of Governors is committed to the principle of accountability to the students, faculty, and staff of The University of British Columbia, as well as to the public which is served by the University, and demonstrates this commitment by conducting its public business at meetings which are open to the public. Webcasts of open Board of Governors meetings are available for one year.
Certain matters are of a confidential nature and should be handled with due and appropriate sensitivity; in this regard, the Board is guided by the Board Meetings Policy (GA8).
