Open Dialogue with Nominees for PWIAS Interim Director

Get the full story at:

As part of the process to select an Interim Director for the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies, open discussions will be convened with each of the three nominees. Members of the UBC community are invited to attend to hear each nominee speak to their vision and priorities for the Institute, and to engage with the UBC community in dialogue. These sessions will be available via live webcast; recordings will be available on the PWIAS website after each event. Candidates’ nomination packages can be found below adjacent to the logistical information about each session.  

Following the session, you are invited to send feedback about each nominee to the PWIAS Board Secretary at PWIAS.Board@ubc.ca. Your input will remain confidential, and will be shared with President Ono who hopes to name the Interim Director in April

We hope you will take this opportunity to participate in an important engagement that will help shape the future of the Institute. These open meetings are the first step in the process by which Professor Ono as President of the University, will select the Interim Director. The selection process will also include meetings with PWIAS Distinguished Professors and staff, and a meeting with the Board of Trustees. 

Thank you in advance for your time to participate in these important meetings.
