Dr. Barry Hogan is BCIT's Dean of Academic Planning and Quality Assurance, within the Vice President Academic Office. This role has a very broad scope, but focuses on advancing BCIT's educational quality agenda, which includes developing and supporting BCIT's various academic plans, and developing processes and policies to support program quality.

Barry joined BCIT in 2002 as Associate Dean of Marketing Management within BCIT's School of Business, following a progressive career in industry. Previous to BCIT, Barry held executive positions including Senior Vice-President of Marketing, and General Manager for some of Canada's largest and most dynamic consumer product companies. He has worked at senior levels in both Vancouver and Toronto, and conducted business across North America and in parts of Europe and Asia.

Barry chose BCIT because of the Institute's close relationship to business, combined with its unique style of applied education, taught by professionals who hold both academic and industry credentials.

Barry has served on and chaired numerous committees and councils, including academic, industry, organizational, and marketing associations. The following are a sampling of the committees Barry currently participates on at BCIT: Strategic Planning Council, Institutional Reporting Committee, Management Professional Development Committee, and the Education Council Programming Committee.
