Affiliation with UBC

The St. Mark’s College Act (Item 1.1), which was approved in the Provincial Legislature of British Columbia in 1956, established St. Mark’s College as a “Roman Catholic educational institution in the City of Vancouver,” governed by a Board of Management (which we refer to as our Board of Directors) and a Senate, and able to “grant degrees in theology only, including honorary degrees and certificates of proficiency in theology as the Senate may determine,” as per Section 15.

St. Mark’s College has an affiliation agreement with the University of British Columbia, which includes the provision that each institution has a representative on the other’s Senate.

The College is located on the northwest edge of the UBC campus. Our affiliation with UBC also enables St. Mark’s students to obtain a UBC affiliate card, which gives them access to numerous amenities and services offered by UBC.
