As we continue to respond to the impact of COVID-19, I would like to share my regular update on UBC’s response – including stories of how our community is coming together.
I always value this opportunity to not only share the latest updates, but also to shine a light on our faculty, staff and students, many of whom are doing incredible work during this challenging time.
This week I am highlighting the federal government’s $9 billion student aid package, which I’m sure has been welcome news to many of our students. I also pay tribute to UBC’s faculty and staff and discuss contingency planning for the Fall term.
You will find my update, in both video and text format, at https://president.ubc.ca/letter-to-the-community/2020/04/24/covid-update-april-24/. As in previous weeks, I am also pleased to close with a UBC musical performance in support of #SongsofComfort.
As we adjust to this new way of living, I want to encourage you to explore your own artistic and creative sides. Whether you play a musical instrument or not, being creative can support our wellbeing, and the wellbeing of those we love.
Santa J. Ono
President and Vice-Chancellor
