Business leaders join Board of Governors

English professor elected as faculty representative

Six new members have been appointed to UBC's Board of Governors by the provincial government. They join Prof. Dennis Danielson, associate head of English, who was recently elected to the board as a faculty representative for a three-year term.

Lawyer Nicole Byres, architect Bryce Rositch, advertising executive Karen Nishi, HSBC Bank Canada president and CEO Martin Glynn, B.C. Gas president and CEO John Reid and Jay Grewal, acting president of Aimglobal Technologies Inc. have been appointed for a three-year term.

"Our board looks forward to working with all the new appointees," says board chair Larry Bell. "These are exciting and challenging times at UBC and I know each new board member will be able to further our common Trek 2000 goal of making UBC the top university in Canada."

Bell thanked five departing board members for their service: Elsie McMurphy, Stephen Howard, Guninder Mumick, Joe Wai and Linda Crompton.

"We appreciate the rich perspective and backgrounds these members brought to our board and are grateful for their contributions," Bell says.

A UBC faculty member since 1986, Danielson is a pioneer member of Foundations, an interdisciplinary introduction to the social sciences and humanities..

UBC's 15-member Board of Governors comprises the chancellor, the president, eight persons appointed by the provincial government, two faculty members elected by faculty, two full-time students elected by students, and one person elected by and from the full-time employees of the university who are not faculty members.
