Congratulations to Dr. Jan Hare, Dean pro tem of the UBC Faculty of Education, effective July 1, 2021
We are grateful to Professor Jan Hare, who has agreed to serve as Dean pro tem, until a new dean is appointed. Dr. Hare is a Professor in the Department of Language and Literary Education and holds a Canada Research Chair (Tier 1) in Indigenous Pedagogy. She previously served as the Associate Dean, Indigenous Education and the Director of the Indigenous Teacher Education Program (NITEP).
Her work in the Faculty of Education advances local, provincial, and national directives in Indigenous education resulting in new programs and pathways for Indigenous learners, as well as transforming teaching, learning, and research to be more responsive to Indigenous knowledges.
Dr. Hare is engaged in shaping UBC priorities, including serving on the Indigenous Strategic Plan Implementation Committee, Lead for the Indigenous Engagement Working Group on the Climate Emergency Task Force, and the Joint Committee for Assessing Indigenous Scholarship.
We look forward to working with Dr. Hare in her capacity as Dean pro tem.
