Our work as a public university is represented by four core areas: People and Places, Research Excellence, Transformative Learning and Local and Global Engagement. Forming the building blocks for our continued success, they are the mechanisms through which we seek to inspire. UBC has considerable strength — and exciting new activity — in all four core areas. However, there are clear opportunities within each for progress that Shaping UBC’s Next Century sets out to address.
TWENTY STRATEGIES ACROSS OUR CORE AREAS
Twenty strategies will help shape UBC in the coming years. There are rich connections between the strategies and the themes and core areas outlined in this plan. Most embrace multiple facets of the university community and many engage our external partners. Each is intended to provide support and guidance to the activities of faculties, schools, departments and cross-cutting initiatives, as expressed in their own strategic plans.
