UBC is developing a Focus on People framework, which will align with other key strategies at the university, including the recently launched strategic plan Shaping UBC’s Next Century. Whether you are a faculty member, staff or student — we want to know what will inspire you to work at UBC in 2025.

Over the last 100 years, UBC has grown to become a leading public university recognized for excellence in research, teaching, and innovation. Our new strategic plan is guiding our ambitions to become one of the world’s best universities and places to work. This Focus on People framework will outline how the university intends to lead as a first-choice place for faculty, staff and students to realize their full potential.

You are invited to share your thoughts in a short online survey at http://focusonpeople.ubc.ca. The survey takes approx. 10-15 minutes to complete and closes December 9, 2018.

Your voice is important and will help to shape our framework and future workplace at UBC. We encourage you to take part in this important opportunity.
