A significant part of doing excellent community engagement involves better internal coordination and connection.
The following groups meet regularly to talk about and advise on UBC’s engagement with communities:
- NEW COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Group This open group aims to coordinate UBC-Vancouver’s response to community partner needs and interests during the COVID-19 recovery period. The purpose of this group is to discuss what UBC units are hearing from community partners, triage asks and share responses. If you are interested in joining or learning more about this joint-initiative with IRSI, CCEL, and the Kx Unit please contact Kat Cureton.
- Community Engagement Network The CEN is intended for UBC staff who connect local and global communities with UBC through outreach and engagement. For more information contact: Zsuzsi Fodor.
- 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 Zsuzsi Fodor.
- 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.
