Announcing Andrew Parr as Interim Vice-President, Students

A message from Professor Santa J. Ono, President and Vice-Chancellor

I wish to announce that I have appointed Andrew Parr as the Interim Vice-President, Students, effective September 10, 2018.

Andrew is currently Managing Director, Student Housing and Hospitality Services. During his time at UBC, he has developed a new organizational structure for student housing and demonstrated leadership in student care. He has built positive relationships across the Vice-President, Students, portfolio and the university as a whole. I am confident that he will continue to provide strong leadership in his role as Interim Vice-President.

As you know, a search for a new Vice-President, Students, is well underway and I am confident that we will find an exceptional candidate. More details will be provided in the coming months regarding this appointment.

Once again, I would like to thank Louise Cowin for her leadership and voice for students. We wish her all the best in her future endeavours.

Please join me in welcoming Andrew to his new role.
