A significant part of doing excellent community engagement involves better internal coordination and connection.

The following groups meet regularly to talk about and advice on UBC’s engagement with communities:

  • Program Planners Community of Practice This community of practice is for people who connect communities with UBC through public events, community outreach, knowledge exchange, and partnership development. We aim to make connections across campus, share experiences, exchange event and program updates and inspiration, and identify ways to partner and work together. For more information contact: Kat Cureton.
  • Community Engaged Scholarship group A group of community engaged scholars from across campus who come together to talk about approaches to engaged learning and research, as well as institutional engagement. For more information contact Mark Edwards or Katie McCallum.
  • Asian Canadian Community Engagement committee The primary purpose of the ACCE Initiative is to provide the University community with a hub of subject matter experts, as a central resource to support UBC’s sustained and mutually enriching engagement with Asian Canadian communities. For more information contact Stefania Burk, Sunaina Assanand or Katie McCallum.

If you are interested in connecting with an existing network or starting your own, either on or off-campus, please email us for support community.engagement@ubc.ca. Check the Community Engagement Events Calendar to learn about other public events.
