On 12 December 2018, the UBC Vancouver Senate directed the Vice-President Academic and Provost to arrange for an external review of the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies. Members of an external review panel were asked to provide their advice and perspectives on the Institute as it renewed its academic commitment and updated its approach to academic programming and governance. The final report of the external review committee was submitted in January 2020 and a joint response from the Interim Director of the Institute and the Board of Trustees was completed in November 2020.
The Vancouver Senate Research and Scholarship Committee’s report and recommendations were presented and approved by the Senate on November 17, 2021.
