UBC faculty, staff and students will gather on Tuesday, February 2 at 12:30 PM – 2:00 PM at the Robert H. Lee Alumni Centre, 6163 University Boulevard.
They will protest the upcoming UBC Board of Governors Meeting, and will publicly demand that
- the Board of Governors stop holding secret, undocumented meeting
- the Board honour its duty to operate in a transparent and accountable fashion
- an external review of its past practices take place immediately
For more background on the issues leading to this protest, see this letter from the Faculty Association, which details how the BoG has, among other things, held committee meetings that left no official record, and made decisions about personnel matters without formal assessments or performance reviews.
Please share with all interested UBC people: faculty, students, staff, alumni… Faculty are encouraged to wear academic robes if they have them!
We have invited MLA David Eby, MLA Andrew Weaver, Minister Andrew Wilkinson, and President Arvind Gupta to join us and speak about these issues.
