External Review of UBC Vantage College
An external review of UBC Vantage College is being carried out to assist the University as it considers the reappointment of Principal Joanne Fox, whose current term comes to an end on 30 June, 2019. The terms of reference for the review can be found here.
A review team will visit UBC Vancouver on November 21, 22, and 23, 2018. The members of the review team are:
Ms. Denise Bush, Dean, Pathways School, Trinity College, University of Melbourne;
Mr. Bruce Russell, Academic Director, International Programs, New College, University of Toronto;
Professor James Smith, Vice-Principal International, University of Edinburgh.
The review team will meet with faculty members, staff, students, senior administrators, and other individuals and groups that may interact with the College. Before the reviewers’ arrival on campus, they will receive documentation on all aspects of the College’s operation, including the quality of its teaching and contributions to the scholarship of teaching, its facilities and resources, its administrative structure and organization, and its internal and external linkages.
Faculty, staff, and students at UBC Vancouver and UBC Okanagan are invited to provide relevant written comments – along with your name and affiliation to UBC – to Dr. Herbert Rosengarten, the review coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, November 16, 2018. All comments will be held in strict confidence, and will be forwarded to the members of the review team. The reviewers’ findings, in the form of a report to the Provost and Vice-President Academic, will be of value to the senior administration, the members of Vantage College, and the University community as a whole.
All are strongly encouraged to participate in this important process – your input is greatly appreciated.
