Academic Planning Updates

Thank you for your interest and participation in our Academic Restructuring Town Hall. We were thrilled to see so many of you take an active interest in this project, and appreciated all of your questions and feedback. 

We had a fantastic turnout for our first engagement session, with approximately 170 faculty members and staff attending the event in person, along with 215 connecting online through the Livestream feed. 

For your reference, here is a link to the Town Hall presentation materials and recording of the livestream Town Hall presentation located on our SharePoint Intranet site. You can access these materials by logging into SharePoint with your UNBC username and password. 

As we move through the engagement process, we will provide project updates on the Integrated Planning website, including an updated list of FAQs. If you have a specific question that was not addressed at the Town Hall, please email

We will be hosting a series of open engagement sessions throughout the month of October. Dates include: 

  • Friday, October 12: 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
  • Tuesday, October 16: 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
  • Thursday, October 18: 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
