I am pleased to announce that Senior Instructor Kathryn Gretsinger, Professor Walter Mérida, Associate Professor Karen Ragoonaden, and Professor John Klironomos have been appointed as Senior Faculty Advisors to the President.
Kathryn Gretsinger and Walter Mérida are based at UBC Vancouver, with Karen Ragoonaden and John Klironomos based at UBC Okanagan.
Each faculty advisor will work on projects that advance our strategic plan: Shaping UBC’s Next Century (https://strategicplan.ubc.ca/). They will advise me on topics and issues that are important to faculty across both campuses, with an overarching goal to bring our UBC community closer together.
I look forward to working with this new team of faculty advisors. Please join me in welcoming them to these new roles.
Santa J. Ono
President and Vice-Chancellor
