Lifetime Achievement Award.
The Franklin Gelin Lifetime Achievement Award goes to Kate Ross (Associate Vice-President, Enrolment, & Registrar, University of British Columbia) in recognition of her leadership and commitment to the vital work of facilitating learner mobility throughout her post-secondary career.
This award recognizes individuals “whose long-term contributions and far-reaching impacts have become apparent over a career of commitment to advancing transfer and articulation in the BC post-secondary system.”
Kate has been working and leading in support of transfer and articulation throughout her 35+ years in post-secondary education, in her roles at Camosun College, Simon Fraser University, and—most recently—at the University of British Columbia.
She’s contributed to the work of the Council and Committees (Admissions and Research) over 11 years. And she’s actively participated in a variety of BCCAT projects focused on expanding learner access and mobility, leading the way within and beyond her own institutional role.
