Governance Update

January 2019

This regular notice to the Okanagan campus community on governance at UBC Okanagan provides updates on upcoming meetings of the Okanagan Senate and the Board of Governors and links to materials as necessary.

UBC operates under a bicameral governance structure in which the Board of Governors is responsible for administrative and fiscal matters and Senate is responsible for academic matters.
