As reported by Lake Country Calendar, UBC Okanagan (UBCO) has responded to Dr. Peter Wylie’s article “Memorandum of Misunderstanding? Public Accountability and the University of British Columbia.” “Memorandum of Misunderstanding?” was published in BC Studies Issue no. 195. In it, Dr. Wylie evaluates whether UBCO “has achieved its stated goals of meeting the educational needs of the local population.” Wylie contends that they have not.
“UBC firmly believes not only that international engagement benefits both domestic and international participants in post-secondary education, but also that the diversity of our campuses has a positive and lasting impact on the economic and social fabric of our communities,” reads the statement released by Deborah Buszard, UBC deputy vice-chancellor and principal of the Okanagan campus.
You can read the full news article in Lake Country Calendar here. “Memorandum of Misunderstanding?” is available online on OJS or through ordering a physical copy of Issue no. 195 through our website.
The BC Studies Annual Online Auction will be taking place from November 23rd through 30th. For news and teasers of some of our fabulous prizes, stay connected with us on Twitter or Facebook. Check back in late November for a link to the auction site and to make your bids!

The Kitsilano Indian Reserve was more or less on the site of today’s Vanier Park, although it stretched as far south as First Avenue, which means it included the approaches to the Burrard Bridge, Molson’s plant and Seaforth Armoury.
It was on the site of a long-standing native village called Snauq.
“Snauq was the basis for a thirty-seven-acre reserve requested in February 1868 by the forty-two persons living there under the leadership of Chief Chip-kay-um and established the next year,” wrote historian Jean Barman in a paper called Erasing Indigenous Identity in Vancouver that was published in BC Studies in autumn, 2007.
