Academic strategy

Our vision is to be a globally recognized and connected university whose research and thinking changes the world. Our strategy helps us get there. 

UBC’s academic strategy, Place and Promise: The UBC Plan, was the result of an 18-month consultation process involving thousands of community members. It sets out UBC’s vision for the future, our collective values and nine commitments, and includes goals and actions designed to bring our academic mission to life.

As well, the following plans support our broader institutional strategy:
