Equity and Inclusion at UBC – Phase II Report

UBC has released phase II of its response to the Implementing Inclusion Report. A Response to the Implementing Inclusion Report- Phase II outlines the activities that have taken place in the past six months as we move forward in our commitment to equity and inclusion at UBC.

Following the Phase I Report released in May 2013 the UBC Executive has accepted and implemented the proposed AVP model as well as some of its associated recommendations. As there are several phases to unfold, the Phase II report outlines the reorganizing activities that have taken place and the main focus moving forward including the search for a new AVP, Equity and Inclusion.
