The University of British Columbia (UBC) is a global centre for excellence in teaching, learning and research, consistently ranked among the top 10 public universities in North America. UBC’s vision is to inspire people, ideas and actions for a better world, fostering global citizenship and advancing a sustainable and just society. Since 1915, UBC has been opening doors of opportunity for people with the curiosity and drive to make a difference.
UBC is home to over 70,000 students, supported by a $3.8-billion annual budget and 19,000 faculty and staff. Across dozens of disciplines, UBC faculty and departments are rated amongst the very best. Whether related to UBC’s contributions on global challenges around poverty, inequality, climate, prosperity and peace, or UBC’s number one ranking in the world for impact in industry, innovation and infrastructure (through its patents, research income and 245 spin off companies), UBC faculty, staff, students and alumni are having an impact.
UBC’s two main campuses are located in Vancouver and in Kelowna, on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territories of the Musqueam and Syilx (Okanagan) peoples, and the University has sites and activities that take place on Indigenous lands throughout BC and beyond. UBC has a deep commitment to leading the advancement of Indigenous people’s human rights and aspires to be a global leader in this regard.
With an inspiring and ambitious vision, the next President of UBC will be a champion for research excellence and innovation in teaching and learning. With a strong track record of success in university leadership, the President will be a passionate advocate for the University externally and an engaged and visible presence internally.
