Associate Deans, Research

The Committee of the Associate Deans of Research represents each UBC faculty and college on the Vancouver campus and is chaired by the Vice-President, Research & Innovation.

The Committee serves as a vehicle for notifying the research community about new research initiatives from the Vice President Research and Innovation Office as well as from external sources.

Its mandate is to implement UBC's research strategy, provide advice on issues affecting the research performance of faculty, and foster enhanced research activity.

The Committee meets four times a year.
