Now entering its eighth year, UBC’s Public Scholars Initiative (PSI) has announced 45 new doctoral students for the 2022/23 academic year.
In addition to interdisciplinary and collaborative research, the PSI also introduced two new elements for the 2022/23 cohort. For the first time since its inception, seven PhD students from the Okanagan campus were added to the cohort.
Another new element this year is the introduction of a climate stream. Scholars in this climate stream are focusing their research on sustainability, climate justice, or environmental impacts of climate change.
The scholars are from nearly every faculty and discipline, and showcase the breadth and depth of research at UBC.

Through Strategy 16: Public Relevance, we are striving to align UBC’s activities with key concerns in British Columbia and beyond through discussion and knowledge sharing.
