Staying Connected e-Newsletter

Staying Connected e-Newsletter

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, UBC Community Engagement launched the Staying Connected e-newsletter with curation support from staff at the Centre for Community-Engaged Learning, the Indigenous Research Support Initiative, the Learning Exchange, and St. John’s College.

Approximately every other week, Staying Connected shares needs, stories and resources to help UBC’s community-engaged scholars and staff stay connected with local communities and each other.
