To: All UBC Students, Faculty and Staff
In August 2009, Stephen J. Toope, President and Vice-Chancellor, presented his vision of international engagement, “International Engagement and Global Influence: How Ambitious is the University of British Columbia?” In it, he put forward the idea of having an advisory council to consider the way forward for UBC’s international engagement. In November 2009, I convened the International Advisory Council to assist in developing strategy.
This draft strategic plan reflects the discussions of the Council and working groups. It has also been circulated for comment to the Committee of Deans, the Committee of Faculty International Advisors and the UBC Senate.
We welcome input on the current draft from the UBC community. To participate, please follow these steps:
1. View or download a PDF version of the draft strategic plan:

A final version of the international strategy will be published in Spring 2011.
