COMMITTED TO COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
Community engagement is about the power of relationships. When people come together it is possible to create positive, significant and lasting differences in communities. Building respectful relationships between communities and UBC is core to the university’s mission and foundational to excellent teaching, learning and research. Community engagement brings the full force of our combined experiences, expertise and knowledge to bear on the salient questions of our time.See more
