I am delighted to announce that the UBC Board of Governors has reappointed Ms. Lisa Castle, Vice-President Human Resources, for a five-year term starting April 2013. Ms Castle has had two previous terms starting April 15, 2002 first as AVP, and as VP since September 2012.
The Board noted that Ms Castle brings an energetic, consultative, strategic and values-based approach to her position. Her terms have been marked by a careful building of human resources practices across the university and implementation of Focus on People: Workplace Practices at UBC. Lisa was commended for her passion and support of the University. She is recognized as one of the most influential human resources leaders in Canada in higher education.
The Board was impressed by Ms Castle’s contributions over her time at UBC and the high regard in which she is held. In approving her reappointment, the Board acknowledged that Ms Castle has been an innovative member of the University leadership, and has done much to implement Place and Promise: the UBC Plan, and to enhance the people practices at UBC.
