A message from James Olson, Dean, Faculty of Applied Science

The Faculty has made tremendous progress toward our strategic plan over the last few years, very much in part because of the tremendous group of school directors and department heads.

I'm pleased to announce that two of our leaders, whose terms were coming to an end, have had their appointments extended for another five years. The appointment extension consideration was conducted in accordance with UBC policy AP9 and established procedures in the Faculty of Applied Science. Appointment committees met with the incumbents and sought written feedback from members of their school/ department, which ultimately led to the reappointment of both leaders, as detailed below.

To that end, I'm pleased to announce the following term extensions within the Faculty of Applied Science.
