UBC’s Strategic Plan and Annual Report

ubc-strat-plan 2015_AnnualReportAd_LearnMore_150x150
Community Engagement is one of three core commitments within UBC’s Strategic Plan, Place and Promise. UBC exists for the communities it serves: local, provincial, national, and global. An integral part of those communities, the University enters into relationships where decisions about means and ends are made collaboratively, costs and benefits are shared, and learning is reciprocal.

Community Engagement is connected with the Community Engagement Office at UBC Okanagan to ensure CE strategy development involves both campuses while respecting their unique environments.
