One-On-One With Sara-Jane Finlay

Dr. Sara-Jane Finlay joined UBC in March as the new Associate Vice-President, Equity and Inclusion.

From Toronto originally, she earned her two undergraduate degrees in Ontario before hopping over the pond to Loughborough University in the UK, where she completed her Masters in Women’s Studies and her PhD in Communication and Media. She lectured in Media and Sociology and then Media and Cultural Studies, with a focus on gender, race, class, culture and identity, before returning home to assume an administrative role in the Office of the Vice President and Provost at the University of Toronto.

In her new role, Sara-Jane is charged with bringing to life UBC’s commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion and mutual respect on both campuses.
