Intro

UBC
2017–2018
Annual Report

As we embarked on the University of British Columbia’s second century, we asked students, faculty, staff, alumni and partners a simple question: What defines our university and what’s our role in the world?

As this annual report showcases, UBC has immense potential to contribute to sustainable and positive change locally and globally. Our collective achievements over the past year show what’s possible when we work in concert to leverage our unique strengths. We hope you like where we’re headed.
