Our Plan in Action

As a global centre for teaching, learning and research, UBC is committed to fostering global citizenship and advancing a sustainable and just society. Shaping UBC’s Next Century guides us and aligns our efforts to put this commitment into real action.  

Considerable progress has been made since we have launched Shaping UBC’s Next Century. On this page, you can find updates and stories from across the university that showcase how the strategic plan is being brought to life.

If you are a member of the UBC community and would like to share your strategic plan-related initiatives with the rest of the university, please contact us. This site will regularly feature the great work being done on campus to support and advance the strategic plan.
