Program Directors

“Program Director” means a person appointed by the Board of Governors of The University of British Columbia on a full-time basis to direct a program or programs in Continuing Studies. Program Director positions combine both academic and administrative functions. Appointment as a program director requires an appropriate university university degree and relevant experience.

All appointments are subject to the approval of the Board of Governors which require supporting documentation.


Program Director (With Review)

Candidates for an initial appointment are judged principally on performance or potential for achievement in professional work in the field of continuing education.

Term appointments with review are appointments for a specified term, normally for two years. Renewal of an individual’s appointment is normally for a term of three years. Appointments with review carry no implication of automatic renewal, but imply that the appointee will be considered for a confirmed appointment in accordance with the criteria and procedures described in the Collective Agreement. Any person holding an appointment with review is eligible for a confirmed appointment.

By the end of an appointee’s fifth year of continuous service in an appointment with review a recommendation must be made to the President by the Associate Vice President either to grant a confirmed appointment or not to renew the appointment. An early recommendation to grant a confirmed appointment may be made when the appointee has had academic, professional, or other comparable experience before being appointed by the University.

Such positions must be advertised in accordance with UBC’s advertising policy.

If the appointee is a not a citizen or permanent resident of Canada, please contact Faculty Relations for assistance.

Such appointments are eligible for pension and benefits. The appointees are members of the Faculty Association and are governed by the Collective Agreement. Program Directors are eligible for all negotiated salary increases (e.g. career progress, merit and performance salary adjustments).
