Dick and Barbara Bate Endowment Leadership Award
Dick and Barbara Bate were instrumental in UFV's growth and development during their time working at the university, and support the laddered program concept enabling students to "ladder" credentials (certificate to diploma, diploma to degree). They care deeply about the impact that education has upon the Fraser Valley.
Dick Bate was the founding Dean of Instruction of the then Fraser Valley College. He served as Dean and Vice President for 25 years before retiring in 2000. Barbara Bate was a long serving faculty member who taught in College and Career Preparation and who worked extensively in the development of Family Literacy Programs.
The Dick Bate Scholarship was established at Dick's retirement through many contributions of his colleagues and friends. Later in 2011, the endowment was renamed the Dick and Barbara Bate Endowment Scholarship, and now in 2017 it will be renamed the Dick and Barbara Bate Endowment Leadership Award, and will continue to grow through future donations by the Bate family.
