Welcome to the University of British Columbia’s first digital and interactive Connected by Commitment 2012-2013 Annual Report. http://annualreport.ubc.ca
Through storytelling and metrics, Connected by Commitment highlights the achievements of our students, faculty, staff and alumni as they support the nine commitments of the university’s Place and Promise Plan. http://strategicplan.ubc.ca
Shared stories connect us as a community, serve as inspiration, and act as a catalyst to ignite change. I invite you to read the year’s stories that connect us at UBC. Here is just a small sample of the 80 stories featured in Connected by Commitment:
A Potent Blend.
What if education travelled seamlessly between real-life and the digital space?
Find out how UBC is creating a potent blend of flexible learning opportunities for students.
Data Meets Deity.
What is the data behind our feelings about religion? Find out how one UBC professor is diving deep into the data of soul.
The Everest Effect.
What would your heart, lungs, and brain feel like 5000m above sea level? That is what the team from UBC wanted to find out on Mount Everest. Read more about their stunning work in the Ev-K2-CNR Pyramid Laboratory.
Through sharing and interacting with these stories, we gain deeper insights into our work, our community, and one another. On behalf of the President’s Office, CTLT and Communications and Marketing, we thank you for your contributions to these stories and hope you enjoy reading them.
