Academic strategy

UBC has been well served by Place and Promise, the strategic plan introduced in 2009 by President Stephen Toope. Thanks in large part to that plan, UBC today ranks among the world's leading universities.

We are currently revisiting our goals and priorities to reflect our changing world, and take an outstanding university and make it even better.

UBC is entering the final stages of a comprehensive strategic planning process. The new plan will serve as a roadmap, helping us focus even more intently on our core activities of learning and research. It also provides an opportunity for us all to help shape the priorities that will influence our university for years to come.
