Call for Expressions of Interest

Student Delegates with the UBC Sauder EDI Committee

The EDI (Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion) Committee at the UBC Sauder School of Business is calling for expressions of interest from students in being considered to be a student delegate associated with UBC Sauder EDI Committee. 

If you are passionate about making a difference in the EDI Space, we would like to hear from you. We would like to recruit a broad range of perspectives to complement our existing committee.

The role of the student delegates will be to work with and advise the committee members on projects and initiatives related to teaching and learning, as well as student experience. The UBC Sauder EDI Committee is advisory to the Deans Office and works on initiatives and recommendations across three domains:

  1. Capacity Building: Continue to develop an engaging EDI culture that builds trust, participation, and inclusion.
  2. Recruitment, Retention and Success: Continue to evaluate recruitment processes to eliminate barriers in the recruitment and retention of faculty and staff, as well as in student recruitment, admission, employment, and career advancement.
  3. Communication, Engagement and Accountability: Develop clear and timely processes through evaluation and transparent reporting to the broad UBC Sauder community on its progress in EDI.

The time commitment involves some attendance at committee meetings, as well as other project-based work on EDI topics. Students should expect to do 2-5 hours of work each month. The term will begin January 1, 2022. The term for serving on as a student delegate is 1 year.

To reduce barriers to participation, student delegates will be given a $1000.00 Student Service Award for contributing to the EDI Committee’s work.
