Faculty and students tell UBC board how to improve

UBC students, faculty, staff and alumni urged the school’s board of governors Thursday to review its operations, improve transparency and accountability and take part in more meaningful consultation, reports the Vancouver Sun.

The groups were offered the opportunity to speak at the meeting, as part of UBC’s efforts to address governance concerns that followed the departure of former president Arvind Gupta last August. The board will respond to the presentations by its June meeting, according to its chairman, Stuart Belkin.
