Martha Piper Appointed to Second UBC Term

The University of British Columbia Board of Governors has re-appointed Martha Piper as UBC President and Vice-Chancellor. Piper’s second term will run to Nov. 15, 2007.

“The board is pleased to have retained Canada’s finest university president in a highly competitive international market where people of Dr. Piper’s calibre are in great demand,” Board of Govenors Chair Larry Bell said. “Since arriving at UBC in 1997, Martha Piper has provided unprecedented leadership that extends throughout our campuses, our community, our province and our country. Martha Piper has been very good for UBC, and she has been very good for B.C.”

Piper is UBC's 11th president since 1913, when Frank Wesbrook first held the chief executive officer position in an institution that has since grown to more than 35,000 students, 10,000 faculty and staff, and annual expenditures approaching $1 billion. Piper’s contract, in line with compensation at similar Canadian universities, stipulates an annual salary of $350,000 with incentive payments of up to $50,000 per year if performance goals set by the Board of Governors are met.
