UNBC confirms James Moore as next chancellor

January 22, 2016

The University of Northern British Columbia’s Board of Governors made its final decision last week in confirming the election of former federal cabinet minister James Moore as its next chancellor, despite ongoing criticism. Board Chair Ryan Matheson said that “the board listened to and considered feedback, positive and negative, received from university stakeholders, including students, senate, faculty, staff and community members.” The UNBC Faculty Association is reportedly disappointed with the decision. “As far as I know we've never had a contentious appointment previous to this,” said Association President  Stephen Rader. “It's hard to imagine that in all of Canada that they couldn't have found a better choice.” Prince George Citizen
