UBC deans throw weight behind current university leadership

Nineteen deans from UBC’s Vancouver and Okanagan campuses expressed support for the university’s current leadership in an op-ed that will appear in local papers Thursday, reports the Globe and Mail.

In recent weeks, faculty and students have been demanding a review of how the school is governed.

UBC welcomes the deans’ comments, said Philip Steenkamp, vice-president, external relations and communications.
