On June 13, 2019, the Board of Governors approved amendments to Policy #16 (Non-University Use of University Services and Facilities) and repeal of Policies #109 (Ownership) and #121 (Campus Mail Services) as the subject matter of those latter policies fall within the amended Policy #16.
The approved amendments confirm that all of UBC’s equipment is owned by UBC and, consistent with UBC’s charitable status, that all such equipment and all of UBC’s support services are to be used primarily for the achievement of UBC’s academic mission and purposes.
The Policy also establishes principles about non-UBC uses of UBC’s equipment and support services, as well as the limited circumstances in which the excess capacity of equipment and support services may be used for non-UBC purposes, such as incidental personal use.
A copy of the approved Policy #16 is available at https://universitycounsel.ubc.ca/files/2019/06/policy16.pdf.
