This plan provides a road map to help UBC reach its potential and a mechanism through which we can be held accountable. Our vision is further articulated with ten goals — the UBC Promise.
The various elements of the plan and how they interact are summarized in this graphic.
UBC is an institution where we:
Lead globally in research excellence, discovery, scholarship and creative endeavours.
Inspire and enable students through excellence in transformative teaching, mentoring, advising and the student experience.
Partner with Indigenous communities on and off campus to address the legacy of colonialism and to co-develop knowledge and relationships.
Build a diverse culture that integrates our themes of innovation, collaboration and inclusion, and infuses them through all our activities.
Lead globally and locally in sustainability, wellbeing and safety across our campuses and communities.
Significantly expand student access, alumni networks and institutional partnerships to reinforce global and local connections.
Lead as a first-choice place to learn and work.
Define and leverage the distinctive and complementary strengths of our campuses and learning sites.
Achieve agility in academic support and administration through thoughtful systemic change and simplification.
Lead as a model public institution, fostering discourse, knowledge exchange and engagement.
