ENVE is a joint program under the jurisdiction of the Dean of the Faculty of Applied Science at the University of British Columbia and the Dean of the College of Science and Management at the University of Northern British Columbia and is administered by a joint Board of Study. The Co-Directors of the Program are responsible for the leadership and administration of the program.

The mandate of the ENVE Joint Board of Study is to administer the program, addressing such matters as program curriculum, course equivalencies, the co-op program, the coordinated international exchange program, student admissions, progress and transfers, program enrolments, course scheduling, and the student environment. The Board will make corresponding recommendations to the Faculty of Applied Science (UBC) and the College of Science and Management (UNBC) and it will advise the two respective Deans on any other matters pertaining to the development of the program.
