The Office of the Provost supports initiatives designed to attract the world’s top scholars and researchers, as well as a diverse class of exceptional graduate and undergraduate students.
Explore our current priorities:
Faculty housing programs
Housing affordability is a key factor in recruiting top-calibre faculty to ensure UBC’s continued research and teaching excellence. We are working with the faculties and other groups to create more affordable housing options on and off campus.
Faculty equity + diversity
UBC is taking action to identify and break down barriers to recruiting outstanding faculty from the broadest possible talent pool.
Student Diversity Initiative
In 2016, UBC established the Commitment to Diversity Fund, to provide a framework that will strategically engage, enhance and embed diversity into our systems and operations.
Strategic student recruitment
UBC is home to more than 60,000 exceptional undergraduate and graduate students from across Canada and 130+ countries. We are actively recruiting from diverse communities to keep our campuses vibrant and to provide our students with a global perspective.
