Welcome back for the start of the 2017/18 academic year. I hope you all had a chance to enjoy the summer.
Today, UBC is welcoming thousands of new and returning students to our campuses, learning and research sites. As we embrace the energy and excitement that comes with this, I would like to take an opportunity to reflect on UBC’s recent developments — as well as look ahead to the future.
I have posted a letter to the UBC community which includes:
Welcoming our students, new faculty and staff
An update on UBC’s Strategic Plan process
Updates on UBC’s global connections, research and innovation
Our commitment to UBC being a safe and inclusive community
