Every year, UBC Okanagan celebrates the outstanding and innovative teaching taking place on our campus.

As you know, the month of May is Asian Heritage Month. It comes to us amidst significant adversities: the unprecedented rise of anti-Asian racism, the scepter of the unrelenting pandemic, the humanitarian crisis in India and so on.

On March 25, 2021, the UBC Okanagan Senate voted in favour of a motion to direct UBC Okanagan Faculties to stop using remote invigilation tools that involve automated recording and algorithmic analysis of data captured during invigilation, except in cases where the use of such ‘remote proctoring software’ is required by external accreditation bodies.

It is my pleasure to announce two outstanding projects that have received funding through the Aspire-2040 Learning Transformations (ALT-2040) fund.

I am pleased to announce that effective May 1, 2021, Brad Wuetherick will assume a five-year appointment as Associate Provost, Academic Programs, Teaching and Learning.

Today, Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, provided information for B.C. public post-secondary institutions to guide planning for a return to on-campus activity this fall.
