    This policy does not reflect the will and opinion of the students. Do not pass this Policy it will hurt the university and what is stands for.

  2. Sean Morgan Anderson

    Policy 34 does not reflect the interests of students, short or long term. This policy also has no support from within the student body. I oppose this policy change.

  3. Reid Nielsen

    Policy 34 is a step backwards, student positions should be voted for by students, not a non-student body.

  4. Dusan Milovanovic

    Policy 34 does not reflect the interests of students. There is no support for this policy from within the student body. I am against this policy change

  5. Jarod Ben-Oliel

    As said above “No Board policy exists for the appointment of other Vice-Presidents.” But trying to implement a quick fix that removes student representation is never a solution, it only creates more problems. I oppose this policy change.

  6. Victoria Camp

    This policy change does not reflect the opinions of the students, the key stakeholders to be effected by this change. Coming from a selection of a board, resulting VPs will inherently not be best equipped to serve the students. I do not agree with this policy change.

  7. Negin Tousi

    This proposed policy change would be a step in the wrong direction. This does not reflect the interest of students. There is no support for this policy from the student body. I am strongly opposed to this policy change.

    “To the Office of the University Counsel,

    On behalf of the Materials Engineering undergraduate students at the University of British Columbia-Vancouver, we are severely disappointed by the changes presented in Policy #34 on how students are selected to the Advisory Committees for Appointments and Extension of Appointments.

    We are not confident in the UBC Senate’s ability to select viable candidates to fairly represent all students from UBC-V and UBC-O, and request that the Policy be changed to reflect that these students should be ELECTED BY AND FROM STUDENTS.

    The University is committed to ensuring that student voices continue to be heard and valued, and this Policy strongly moves against this commitment. We hope that you will reconsider how students are chosen to represent us on the advisory committees for appointing Administrative Vice-Presidents.

    Cheers,
    – Lawrence”

    Policy 34 is not an appropriate solution, and does not serve the interest of the students of UBC. I very much oppose this policy change.

  10. Carlo Domini Penacerrada

    The proposed policy #34 does not reflect the views of the students of UBC. I do not agree with this policy

  11. Ian Rodriguez

    This policy is not in the best interests of students because it removes representation from students and as such is a step against student participation in their university.

    I am extremely disappointed that a stunt like policy 34 would be pulled. This attempt of excluding the students, the key stake holders in this decision, from the VP selection process is both ludicrous and shameful. It is self-evident that it will be harmful to the university. It is most certainly a step in the wrong direction and as a student I doubtlessly oppose it.

  13. Rachel Ambrus

    The student union exists to represent students and taking power away from the students is not an acceptable method of achieving this.

  14. Hilary Wong

    I do not agree with removing the right for students to elect the council that will govern the student body. It’s contradictory and makes no sense.

  15. Nolan Ohmart

    This does not reflect the interest of students. This is absolutely unacceptable. I am sorry that someone would attempt to implement such a policy. It shows a complete lack of disrespect towards students, and is not conducive to a UBC community in which everyone has a right to determine the direction of the community as a whole.
