UBC Insiders On Air, Episode 21 – Governance Pro Tips

Emily Blake and Julie Cafley

This week Emily Blake of CiTR’s News 101 joins us to talk about UBC’s sexual assault external investigation, the interminable saga of the Board of Governors, and AMS elections. Our feature interview is with Dr. Julie Cafley, a Vice-President at Canada‚Äôs Public Policy Forum, (an independent think tank based in Ottawa) who did her PhD research on unfinished tenures of Canadian University Presidents. She’ll tell us if UBC is as bad as we think it is from a bird’s eye view.
