Submit your ideas for new ways of working

To Faculty and Staff on the Vancouver and Okanagan Campuses

Do you have an idea for a new way of working?

Do you have an idea about how to do things better at UBC? As faculty or staff, you are invited to submit your suggestions on how the university can be more efficient.

Between now and May 13, 2015, you are invited to submit a suggestion that you believe will create a new revenue stream and/or operating efficiency for the university. A review committee led by the Provost’s offices from both Vancouver and the Okanagan, will consider all suggestions that are submitted. The committee will then share the most beneficial ideas with the appropriate department for further exploration and implementation.

Ideas can be applicable to the coming fiscal year or any future year. Every spring you will be invited to submit new suggestions, as the university reports back on the ideas that are implemented.

We hope you will join the conversation and submit your idea at
