International Networks

UBC is proud to partner with peer universities around the world, as part of prominent international university networks.

APRU: Association of Pacific Rim Universities

As the only network of leading universities linking the Americas, Asia and Australasia, the Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU) is the voice of knowledge and innovation for the Asia-Pacific region. We bring together thought leaders, researchers, and policy-makers to exchange ideas and collaborate on effective solutions to the challenges of the 21st century.

Through conferences, workshops, and programs APRU provides a forum for collaboration and enables partner universities to become effective contributors to the development of a prosperous and integrated Pacific Rim community.




UBC is also member of the following networks:
