Board governance issues and the President’s resignation

Tags: , ,

A letter from Mark Mac Lean, President
On behalf of the UBC Faculty Association Executive Committee

“It has been a while since the Faculty Association last communicated with members about the aftermath of the resignation of Dr. Arvind Gupta. Since the Board of Governor’s refusal last fall to provide a full explanation as to how the University came to lose its President, the Faculty Association has engaged in a search for information to attempt to piece together the events that led to Dr. Gupta’s departure. Our goal has been to determine if there was due process leading up to the Board accepting Dr. Gupta’s resignation. Dr. Gupta has now publicly stated that a formal review was never done . . .”
